WORLD HISTORY THEORY AND PRACTICE: GENDER, TECHNOLOGY, CULTURE: CALL FOR PAPERS FOR UPCOMING CONFERENCE

St John Call

WORLD HISTORY THEORY AND PRACTICE: GENDER, TECHNOLOGY, CULTURE
NEW YORK CITY MANHATTAN CAMPUS
SATURDAY, MAY 2, 2015

St. John’s University’s History department convenes its second World History Theory and
Practice conference in order to advance theories and to consider practices of world history. The conference will offer panels on both research and teaching with the aim of fostering research-driven conversations on the teaching of world history.

We invite papers that deal with any aspect of the themes of this year’s conference – Gender, Technology, Culture. We seek a broader understanding of how each of these has informed historical research, teaching, and public history. Paper proposals need not address all three areas, or necessarily more than one, but all papers should make a contribution to the wider discourse on the theory and practice of World History. Topics may include, but are not limited to, mass or popular movements, invention/innovation in global perspective, popular culture in world history, the gendering of technology, representations of gender/technology in the arts or media, the history of ideas, cultural influences/confluences/conflicts, and the application of theory, research, social media, and other technologies to classroom practice.

We welcome digital applications of world history and paper proposals from world history practitioners—world history instructors, advanced graduate students, public historians, librarians, archivists, and museum curators—who research and teach world history and study how gender and technology have shaped our culture and our histories. In particular, we are interested in proposals that highlight the significance of research for the practice
of world history or how the practice of world history affects the way that we conceptualize research.

Please submit a 250 word abstract for a 20-minute presentation and a one-page CV or resumé to conference organizers at  worldhistorytheorypractice@gmail.com by January
31, 2015.
