RADICAL HERITAGE, ART AND CULTURE

Part of

RADICAL HISTORIES/HISTORIES OF RADICALISM A MAJOR CONFERENCE AND PUBLIC HISTORY FESTIVAL, 1-3 July 2016

Queen Mary University of London, UK

This international event will explore radical approaches to the past and histories of radical ideas and action through workshops, lectures, panels, performances, screenings, workshops and exhibitions.

For this strand (D) we are particularly interested in cultural initiatives that are wholly or partly situated outside of established heritage organisations, that offer alternative or counter narratives, or that experiment with new forms of producing and articulating history. We invite academics, activists, artists, and practitioners of all kinds to contribute proposals for short papers, workshops, walks, displays, and performances that critically reflect on themes including but not limited to those listed below:

Radical forms of heritage

Uses of the past

Radical and alternative forms of classification

DIY heritage projects: who, how and why?

Walks as public history

Digital heritage

Mainstreaming radical histories

Cultural interventions

Art and activism

Counter narratives

Democratisation of heritage

If you would need more information or would like to informally discuss proposals for the strand, please contact Kathleen McIlvenna: kathleenmcil@gmail.com

Please send a 250 – 500 word proposal, marked Strand D and including a description of the format and content of the proposed paper, session, workshop, meeting, screening, or performance to Katy Pettit, Raphael Samuel History Centre administrator (k.pettit@uel.ac.uk<mailto:k.pettit@uel.ac.uk>) by Monday September 14th. Proposers will be notified by November 30th.
