Call for Papers: “The Global Public: Its Power and its Limits”

Valeska Huber (German Historical Institute London) and Jürgen Osterhammel (Leibnizpreis-Forschungsstelle Globale Prozesse, University Konstanz) are looking for contributions for the conference “The Global Public: Its Power and its Limits” taking place on October 22-24, 2015 at the German Historical Institute London.

The conference will explore theories and practices of a global public covering the long 20th century from the 1870s. What are the power and limits of the global public? Is there even such a thing or are geographical and social limits too strong? The conference will focus on four core areas: Infrastructure, scope,  economics and politics of the global public and discuss them from a historical but also anthropological and geographical perspective.

You can find the entire CfP here and on the German Historical Institute’s website. Please send in your proposal and a brief CV until February 28, 2015.
