For scholars interested in the role of socialist and non-aligned countries in the history of economic globalisation post-WWII, see this interesting call for papers for a conference at the University of Exeter from 6-7 July:
In the wake of the Second World War, the world economy began to ‘reglobalise’ – following the disintegrative processes of the interwar period. This story has most often been told as the final triumph of a neoliberal international order led by the West. Recent research, however, suggests that the creation of our modern interconnected world was not driven solely by the forces of Western capitalism, nor was it the only model of global economic interdependence that arose in the second half of the twentieth century. This conference aims to rethink the histories of postwar globalisation by focusing on the socialist and non-aligned world, whose roles in the rise of an economically interconnected world have received substantially less attention.
See the conference website for more information. Abstracts of 300-500 words and a short CV should be sent to Natalie Taylor (N.H.Taylor@exeter.ac.uk) by 18 March 2017.
