Call for papers ‘Depoliticization before Neoliberalism: Contesting the Limits of the Political in Modern Europe’
The workshop ‘Depoliticization before Neoliberalism: Contesting the Limits of the Political in Modern Europe’ welcomes papers conducting (comparative) case studies on depoliticization in relation to its counterpart politicization. Cases can be drawn from any area in Europe and timeframe between the mid-18th and late-20th century. We also welcome papers on cases of global interactions with European areas, for example in transatlantic and (post)colonial settings. Paper proposals should include a preliminary title, an abstract of 250-300 words, and affiliation and contact details.
Abstracts can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2021. Successful applicants will be notified before November 1.
The workshop will feature pre-circulation of first draft papers and oral presentations with subsequent discussion. It will take place at Radboud University, Nijmegen, on April 1–2, 2022, and/or partly or fully online, depending on the COVID-19 situation. Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered. The workshop is funded by the Thorbecke Fund of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences (KNAW). A publication is intended.
