CALL FOR PAPERS
‘COMMUNISM AND A CENTURY OF WAR’
PSA Communism Specialist Group 2014 conference and AGM
University of Durham, 15 December 2014
The Communism Specialist Group invites proposals of papers to be presented at its third annual conference to be held in Durham. As in the case of our previous events, we hope that it will be both comparative and inter-disciplinary in character. In particular, we welcome proposals falling under one or the other of the following heads:
• Communism and a century of war: papers relating to any aspect of the relationship between communist movements and systems and issues of war and peace
• Current work in communist studies: papers deriving from new research on communism in any field relating to the work of the specialist group. In particular, we would encourage submissions from younger researchers and those who have not previously presented at any of the group’s events.
Depending on the proposals received, we envisage that the morning sessions will be devoted to current work in communist studies and the afternoon session to communism and a century of war. We have limited funds to assist with travel expenses; for the ‘current work’ session, preference will be given to members of the specialist group.
Please send offers of papers (by 31 October) and any queries to firstname.lastname@example.org
