Reassessing the Seventies: CCBH Summer Conference 2010 Call for Papers
The call for papers for the CCBH Summer Conference is now available.
The 1970s marked a watershed in post-war British history with economic crises and profound political and social discord precipitating major social, cultural, political and economic changes with enduring consequences. Three decades after the 'winter of discontent' and the election of Margaret Thatcher, and with the papers now fully open, this major interdisciplinary conference will reassess developments in this crucial decade, placing them in the context of postwar British history as a whole. The conference will include keynote addresses from notable academics and contemporary figures.
Proposals are invited for panels and for individual papers addressing themes related to Britain in the 1970s in a wide range of fields of enquiry across political, economic, social and cultural history. In addition to proposals from contemporary historians, we encourage submissions from colleagues in a wide range of related fields in the social sciences.
