Conference: contested histories and the parameters of resistance, 3 July 2012

Date of Conference: Tuesday 3rd July 2012, Berrick Saul Building, University of York

Keynote: Dr. Alan Rice (University of Central Lancashire)

Representing the past is a contested and dissonant process. This interdisciplinary conference aims to create a dialogue across subjects concerning the different ways in which narratives, cultural artefacts, spaces and places are creatively used and reused to perform acts of resistance which contest authoritative versions of history. In line with this we hope to raise questions and indeed try to understand the consequences of these processes of challenge.

Proposals are welcomed to this free event from postgraduate students and early career researchers working in or across disciplines including History, Literature, History of Art, Archaeology, Architecture, Cultural Studies, Film, Geography, International Development, Politics and related fields.

Please send abstracts of up to 300 words for papers of 20 minutes as well as a brief academic biography of 50 to 100 words to the conference organisers at by 5pm 30th March. Please contact the organisers on the above email for further information or visit the website for the full call for papers:
