Call for complementary proposals 7th European Congress on World and Global History – deadline 30 September 2022

The 7th Congress of the European Network In Universal and Global History (ENIUGH) will be hosted by Leiden University on its campus in The Hague, UN City of Peace and Justice, from 29 June to 1st July 2023. Under the main congress theme ‘Conflict and Inequity, Peace and Justice: Local, Regional, and International Perspectives’, the aim of the 2023 conference is to discuss structural and specific causes of conflict and inequity as well as the corollary features of various quests for peace and justice.

Building on the recent experience of new formats for scientific exchange as a result of the Covid19-pandemic, the congress will offer online-sessions, with most of the programme being planned to take place on-site in the inspiring surroundings of The Hague. The general events such as the opening ceremony and round-table discussions each day will be streamed online to allow distant participants to take part.

Call for complementary proposals

In this second call, the organisers invite submissions specifically related to the topics listed below, as well as submissions more generally connected to the fields of transnational, transregional, and global history, together with submissions related to the main theme of the congress. With the main theme “Conflict and Inequity, Peace and Justice: Local, Regional, and International Perspectives”, the organisers aim to discuss structural and specific causes of conflict and inequity as well as the corollary features of various quests for peace and justice. These causes and quests – as core constellations and long-lasting aspirations, respectively – have shaped the lives of peoples and the development of sociopolitical orders in all historical periods and around the globe. Having impacted historical processes of every kind, we therefore think that it is crucial to comprehend them both if we want to understand the challenges and potential of the present day. Proposals are welcomed on panels and papers to examine how historical narratives have been constructed around moments of peace and of conflict and to reflect on the long-term impacts of conflict and inequity in relation to processes of reconciliation and peace-making, in particular regarding relational and dialectical interpretations of peace and conflict as well as of justice and inequity in a historical perspective, including the different scales on and the various dimensions in which they played out.

Proposals should be submitted ultimately 30 September 2022.
