3rd INTH Conference "Place and Displacement: The Spacing of History"

Call for papers
The International Network for Theory of History (INTH) is happy to announce
that its third network conference will take place in Stockholm  from  August
 20th– 22nd, 2018, at Södertörn  University. The goal of the conference is
to gather theorists and philosophers of history from around the world and to
offer a forum for scholars to exchange ideas, questions and resources.

Recent years have seen a tragic combination of increasing levels of forced
migration and a rise of isolationist nationalist and religious identity
politics. The 3rd INTH conference will address these issues through the
overarching theme of place and displacement and the shaping of the spaces of
history and memory.  

History is often used to claim the specific identity of places, delimit or
contest certain territories, and  undergird politics of spatial in- and
exclusion. Spatial politics also tend to orient how and from what
perspective the past is represented. Migration and spatial dislocation can
profoundly change the way  people relate to history and memory. The politics
and historicity of space is an emerging domain where theory of history,
history and philosophy, critical cultural  geography, political science,
urban and memory studies come together to explore a common territory.
Ultimately, it motivates a critical examination of the fields of knowledge
production and transmission: To what extent are particular histories and
philosophies of history not only place-based but also place-bound-in their
truth claims? How can we capture the transnational interconnectedness and
place-making dynamics of histories from migrating, multidirectional
memories? And which kinds of history writing and history education are best
equipped to respond to the challenges of global migration and multicultural
societies? To what extent do histories not just ‘take place’ but also always
‘make place’ by changing these places and the way they are experienced?
The main focus of this conference is on place and displacement and its
relevance for the theory of history. But as in the previous meetings of the
INTH, we also welcome papers on other relevant topics in the field of
Philosophy and Theory of History, including (but not necessarily limited to): 

• Conceptual history 
• Ethics of history 
• Experience/presence 
• Hermeneutics 
• Historical (in)justice 
• Historical time 
• History and mourning/trauma 
• History as science (causation, explanation, lawfulness ...) 
• Narrativism 
• Politics of history and memory 
• Public/popular history 
• Substantive/speculative philosophy of history 
• The history of historiography 
• The relations between history and other academic fields 

Through the collaboration with the Centre for Baltic and East European
Studies (CBEES), there will also be special panels devoted to topics in the
Theory of history with connection to Eastern Europe and Russia. 

Confirmed speakers:
Joan W. Scott 
Jeff Malpas  
Victoria Collis-Buthelezi
