PUNCS (Plymouth Nineteenth Century Studies) invites proposals for 20-minute papers for a proposed international, interdisciplinary conference in 22 – 23 June 2017 on the general theme of union and disunion.
The first international conference hosted by PUNCS began on the day of the Brexit vote, and commentators have seen this event in the context of other signs of anti-globalisation, and in a landscape of violent disintegrations or forcible integrations in the Twenty-first century.
We are interested in papers by scholars working in British, continental European, American and world history in the Nineteenth century, in literary studies, history, legal history, art history, economic history, geography and other disciplines.
Please send your 300 word abstract and a brief c.v. to one of the organisers listed below. The deadline is 28 November 2016.
We hope to edit a selection of papers for publication after the conference.
