Call for Papers:

The Other 60s: A Decade That Shaped Canada and the World

Saturday April 22, 2017

Department of History, The University of Toronto

Co-Chairs: Paula Hastings & Heidi Bohaker

We invite proposals for papers to be presented at a day-long workshop intended to provoke public discussion about the larger global context in which the Canadian federation emerged.  We invite papers that will stimulate thoughtful and engaged conversation about mid-nineteenth events and developments.  What do they say about Canadian Confederation and what do they reveal about the political formations in the world in which we now live?  To ensure that the conversation continues, we intend to gather the workshop presentations into an edited volume of short essays, intended for a broad audience.

We invite paper submissions (papers only, not entire panels) on the following themes:

  • Confederation in global context
  • Colonialisms, Empires and Indigeneity
  • The Idea of Sovereignty
  • Wars and Revolutions in the 1860s
  • Federalisms, Nationalisms, and Nation/State formations
  • Infrastructure, Technology, and Economy in the 1860s
  • Memories, Commemorations, and the Invention of Traditions

Deadline for submissions: FRIDAY JUNE 24, 2016.

Please submit a 250-300 word abstract and CV to other60s@utoronto.ca. For further information, please contact other60s@utoronto.ca.

Nous sollicitons des propositions de communications pour un atelier de recherche visant à encourager des discussions de grande envergure sur le contexte global dans lequel la fédération canadienne a émergé.

  • Confédération dans le contexte global
  • Colonialismes, empires et autochtonicité
  • Le concept de la souveraineté
  • Guerres et révolutions des années 1860
