The New England Regional World History Association (NERWHA) invites proposals for panels, individual papers, and roundtables related to the theme of “Industrialization and World History.”
Proposals can be interdisciplinary, research-based, or have a pedagogical framework. Preference will be given to submissions based on the symposium’s theme, but we also welcome submissions on all aspects of world history scholarship and pedagogy.
Submissions relating to the theme could include, but are not limited to, any of the following consequences of industrial development in any era of the human past: urbanization and social change; environmental challenges; social-economic stratification and daily life; migration and challenges to identity and culture; leisure time and social change; new paradigms for regulations and power relationships; imperialism and responses to colonialism; modern ideologies; labor and political responses; and challenges to Eurocentric models of development.
