CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO: RADICAL HERITAGE, ART AND CULTURE


CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO:
RADICAL HERITAGE, ART AND CULTURE
a strand of
RADICAL HISTORIES/HISTORIES OF RADICALISM
A MAJOR CONFERENCE AND PUBLIC HISTORY FESTIVAL
1-3 July 2016
Queen Mary University of London
 
This international event will explore radical approaches to the past and histories of radical ideas and action through workshops, lectures, panels, performances, screenings, workshops and exhibitions.
For this strand (D) we are particularly interested in cultural initiatives that are wholly or partly situated outside of established heritage organisations, that offer alternative or counter narratives, or that experiment with new forms of producing and articulating history. We invite academics, activists, artists, and practitioners of all kinds to contribute proposals for short papers, workshops, walks, displays, and performances that critically reflect on themes including but not limited to those listed below:
·         Radical forms of heritage
·         Uses of the past
·         Radical and alternative forms of classification
·         DIY heritage projects: who, how and why?
·         Walks as public history
·         Digital heritage
·         Mainstreaming radical histories
·         Cultural interventions
·         Art and activism
·         Counter narratives
·         Democratisation of heritage
If you would need more information or would like to informally discuss proposals for the strand, please contact Kathleen McIlvennakathleenmcil@gmail.com
Please send a 250 - 500 word proposal, marked Strand D and including a description of the format and content of the proposed paper, session, workshop, meeting, screening, or performance to Katy Pettit, Raphael Samuel History Centre administrator (k.pettit@uel.ac.uk) by Monday September 14th. Proposers will be notified by November 30th.
