CFP Workshop: Populism, a historiographic category?
Deadline: June 15, 2013
Populism is a category which is often abused in public discourse
nowadays. For this reason, it is a category historians will have to face
more and more frequently. In spite of this, it is undeniable that the
issue is usually looked at from the perspective of political science or
cultural studies, clearly dominated by a need for conceptualization and
abstraction of the category. As some scholars have pointed out, the clear
difficulty in reaching a unique and unitary definition of the phenomenon
shows how indefinite its outline is and how problematic it is to ascribe
different experiences to a single ideal-type.

CFP: Objects of remembrance, Journal of Decorative and Propaganda Arts
Deadline: May 31, 2013
*Call for Proposals: Objects of remembrance*
Objects have always been and continue to be carriers of personal and
communal memories. The proliferation of objects of remembrance starting in
the nineteenth century speaks to the widely felt desire for tangible
markers of both fleeting personal experiences and significant public
events, from coronations to catastrophes; and equally to the possibilities
created by new production processes and technologies that emerged in that
century and after. What was particular to modern notions and experiences
of time that called forth this demand for souvenirs, commemorative medals
and ceramics, postcards, photo albums, and a wide variety of other objects
of all kinds that could serve as devices of memory? What roles did such
objects play in individual lives, in communities, and in larger social and
political relationships? What strategies did artists, designers and
manufacturers use to produce objects that could serve these functions?
