We invite you submit panels, papers, and book sessions proposals to the States & Society network for the 39th annual meeting of the Social Science History Association, November 6-9, 2014, in Toronto. For more information on the meeting as well as the call for proposals, please refer to the SSHA website: www.ssha.org. The deadline for submissions is February 14, 2014.
While we welcome proposals on any topic of interest to scholars of states, societies, and the relations between them throughout history and around the globe, we are particularly soliciting papers addressing the conference theme, "Inequalities: Politics, Policy, and the Past," and/or the following themes, drawn from member suggestions:
- Comparing Revolutions
- States and Patterns of Inequality
- Intra and Inter-regional Inequalities (e.g. Middle East, Latin America, Africa)
- Military-State Relations
- Constitutions and Constitutionalism
- Book panel ("Author meets Critics") proposals are also warmly welcomed.
Submissions should be made via the SSHA web conference management system. Paper title, brief abstract, and contact information should be submitted on the site www.ssha.org, where the general SSHA 2014 call for papers is also available. A full panel proposal should include at least 1) four papers, a 2) discussant, and a 3) chair. The online system is now accepting submissions: http://conference.ssha.org/
While pre-organized panels are encouraged, SSHA has set up a mechanism for networks to share papers, so please also send in solo paper abstracts. It is possible and useful to identify a paper not only by the States & Society network, but also by some other co-sponsoring networks. Co-sponsored panels and papers are encouraged by the SSHA Program Committee as a means of broadening the visibility of the various networks.
