Third AAWH Congress: Migration in Global History: Peoples, Plants, Plagues, and Ports - Call for Papers
June 8, 2014Call for papers, deadline 1 October 2014
Understood in the broadest sense, "migration" brings into focus questions about the movement of peoples, businesses, capital, ideas, goods, diseases, technologies, diverse forms of knowledge, artistic styles, ecologies, as well as medical and scientific discoveries and practices across global borders. Ports such as Singapore's facilitated these movements, which enmeshed the globe in profound change. The 2015 AAWH Congress considers these subjects in their global, world, transregional, interdisciplinary, comparative, international, and big historical contexts, and welcomes proposals related to the Congress theme.
While the Congress committee welcomes panels and papers that address Migration in Global History, it will also consider proposals related to other topics on the history of the Asia-Pacific from global and world perspectives, including (but not limited to) the interdisciplinary history of science, technology, medicine, business, and the environment. Proposals addressing the epistemology and methodology of teaching and writing global, world, transnational, and big history are also welcomed.
Panels should comprise three or four papers with a chair and commentator. Roundtables involving a chair and three to five participants are also welcomed. Alternative arrangements will be considered. All of these should be elaborated in the proposal, which should also include a 250-word rationale for the panel, an abstract of each paper not exceeding 500 words, and a 1-page CV of each presenter. Please include audiovisual requests, if you have any.
All proposals should be submitted to: 2015AAWH.Congress@ntu.edu.sg, with the subject line "2015 AAWH Congress Proposal." If you wish to submit your proposal by postal service, it should be dispatched to:
2015 AAWH Congress Committee
