Call for papers per la Graduate Conference “Soggetti in conflitto. Tra scontro e riconoscimento”.

QUANDO E DOVE

La Student Conference si terrà presso il Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche e Sociali i giorni  10/11/12 maggio 2021. I lavori si svolgeranno in presenza, se consentito dalle norme sanitarie in vigore, in caso di impossibilità verrà utilizzata la modalità da remoto. 

TEMA

Soggetti in conflitto. Tra scontro e riconoscimento è una Student Conference rivolta a  studenti/sse e dottorandi/e che abbiano lavorato e lavorino su progetti di tesi e di ricerca nel campo  della Storia medievale, moderna e contemporanea. La Student Conference si propone di favorire il  dialogo tra studenti/sse e dottorandi/e di diversa provenienza all’interno di un contesto stimolante  nel quale discutere le proprie ricerche, in corso e concluse.  

I concetti chiave dell’edizione 2021 sono il “conflitto” ed il “riconoscimento”. Lo storico Francesco  Benigno ha evidenziato come il conflitto e la necessità di “esistere socialmente o politicamente”,  ossia di ottenere riconoscimento, siano stati, e continuino ad essere, elementi profondamente  interrelati. Nella storia, la declinazione di questi concetti ha assunto infinite forme e, in tempi più  recenti, avvenimenti quali la protesta dei cittadini di Hong Kong e il movimento Black Lives Matter ne dimostrano la pervasività e l’attualità. La Call for Papers si rivolge a studenti/sse (in possesso  della Laurea Triennale) e dottorandi/e (fino al XXXIII ciclo incluso) e intende stimolare un’ampia  riflessione, a coprire un intervallo cronologico che spazia dal medioevo alla contemporaneità, sulle  lotte, sulle rivendicazioni e sulle aspirazioni sociali, culturali e politiche, analizzate attraverso le  lenti della ricerca storica, in tutte le sue discipline ed approcci metodologici.  

Le proposte di contributo potranno articolarsi attorno ai seguenti temi: 

– Conflitti storiografici: l’uso della storia in chiave identitaria 

– Conflitti simbolici nel processo di Nation Building 

– Conflitti e riconoscimenti all’interno di un sistema di multi-level governance – Conflitti coloniali, anti-coloniali e post-coloniali 

– Conflitti razziali e di genere 

– Conflitti nel lavoro come procedura di riconoscimento 

– Il feudalesimo come processo di conflitto per il riconoscimento 

– Il ruolo della violenza nella definizione dell’identità 

– Rappresentazione culturale, sociale e politica dei conflitti 

– Il riconoscimento nelle relazioni e nelle questioni di politica internazionale

  WHAT

Call for papers for the Student Conference “Conflicting Subjects. Between Clash and Recognition”

WHEN / WHERE

The Student Conference will be held 10th/11th/12th May 2021. If permitted by the health situation, the Conference will take place in presence. Otherwise, it will be held online.

TOPICS

for graduate students and Ph.D. students who have worked and work on thesis and research projects in the fields of Medieval, Modern and Contemporary History.
The Student Conference aims to encourage dialogue between students and doctoral students from different backgrounds within an inspiring and stimulating context in which to discuss their research, ongoing and concluded.
The key concepts of the 2021 edition are those of “conflict” and “recognition”. Historian Francesco Benigno has highlighted how conflicts and the need to “exist socially and politically”, i.e. to gain recognition, have been and continued to be deeply interrelated. In history, the declination of these two concepts has taken on different forms and, in more recent times, events such as the protest in Hong Kong and the Black Lives Matter movement demonstrate its pervasiveness and relevance.
The Call for Papers is aimed at graduate students (in possess of a Bachelor degree) and Ph.D. students (who have not yet obtained their qualification), and aspires to stimulate a reflection, chronologically extended to cover from the Middle Ages to the contemporary, on social, cultural, political struggles, claims and aspirations, analysed through the lens of historical research, in all its disciplines and methodological approaches.
