As world politics continue to revolve around questions and controversies concerning refugees and migration, historians have begun to pay increasing attention to earlier forms of human movement that have been compelled or assisted by states or international organizations, which can offer valuable background and precedents. A conference to be held in Germany next year seeks…

CfP: Imperial Legacies of 1919 (Texas, April 2019)

The next year will see the culmination of a half decade of events celebrating and commemorating the centenary of the First World War – a year in which the focus will be on the conflict’s aftermaths and consequences. And at a time when much of the reassessment of the Great War has been concerned with contributions from and effects on colonial territories – which helped truly make the event a war that spanned the world – several conferences have and will be turning their gaze toward the impact of the conflagration on empire, broadly speaking, integrating its impact on such events that are also seeing their centenary as the Amritsar Massacre, the First Egyptian Revolution, and the Third Anglo-Afghan War.

In that vein, the University of North Texas, located in Denton – part of the Dallas-Forth Worth metropolitan area – has invited paper and panel proposals focused on the imperial legacies of the conflict.…

CFP: Technological Innovation and the Spread of Globalization in the Cold War (Vienna, October 2018)

Last Monday, 5 February, marked a milestone in the history of the post-Cold War era: for the first time, the period during which the Berlin Wall has been down has now lasted longer than the period when it divided its namesake city – and, more symbolically, Germany, Europe, and the world. As the height of…

CFP: The Global Irish Revolution (Belfast, June 2018)

Global history is sometimes criticized for a kind of vague superficiality: reducing detailed and complex events to a whirlwind blur of mobility, connection, or convergence, either overemphasizing the coherence of its theses around a diverse, complicated world or else forced to make them so general as to generate little meaningful argument. As David Bell put…

CFP: Entangled Others – Other Entanglements: Critical Perspectives on the Relationship of Racism and Antisemitism (Berlin, June 2019)

At least since the end of the Second World War – and Hannah Arendt’s suggestion in her 1951 Origins of Totalitarianism that the Holocaust was an outgrowth of attitudes developed in the context of European colonialism – historians and other scholars have been preoccupied with the links between antisemitism and related forms of othering and…

CFP: Globalization and Migration in the 19th and 20th Centuries (Paderborn, Germany – November 2018)

“Europe has, in the final analysis, a utilitarian relationship to globalization,” write the organizers, at Germany’s Paderborn University, of a conference on how the subject relates to migration. It is a perspective that, for them, emerges from observing European efforts to impose controls on incoming refugee and migrant populations. “Yet,” they continue, “the history of migration…
