With apologies for cross-posting, submissions are welcomed for the annual conference of the Association for the Study of Modern and Contemporary France at the University of Stirling from 1st-3rd September 2011. The CFP closes on 1st February 2011.

Continuities and Discontinuities? France Across the Generations
ASMCF Annual Conference, University of Stirling, 
1st-3rd September 2011

The year 2011 will mark a number of anniversaries central to the shaping of modern and contemporary France and its citizens: a decade after the events of 9/11; thirty years since the beginning of the Mitterrand era; fifty years on from the massacre of October 1961... As well as their significance in and of themselves, these events and the debates they triggered have served to frame many of the concerns that have preoccupied modern and contemporary France. They do so particularly as they bring to the fore questions of societal change and specifically the impact of intergenerational clashes, tensions and exchanges, within the confines of the Hexagon but also in France’s global relations. 

Taking these exchanges, clashes and tensions as our starting point, the conference will be organised around SIX major themes that engage broadly with the notion of continuities and/or discontinuities in the evolution of modern and contemporary France. We list these below with suggested panels for each theme. The suggestions are not meant to imply that alternative ideas for panels or individual papers are not also warmly welcomed. 

We would welcome proposals in the following areas:
1.	Political Generations

In line with the ASMCF’s interdisciplinary approach, this three-day conference welcomes papers from a wide variety of disciplines including international relations, history, geography, politics, economics, sociology and religious, gender, literary, cultural, film and media studies. We invite both proposals for individual papers (300 words max.) and for panels, which should consist of three presenters and a named chairperson. Papers may be delivered in English or French. The total time for one paper is 20 minutes both for presentations in panels as well as for individual presentations. Postgraduate students are strongly encouraged to present papers. 

Postgraduate Poster Session: postgraduates in the early stage of their research are invited to present their work at the conference Poster Session. The Poster Session aims to enable postgraduate students to participate in the conference programme, receive feedback from specialists in an informal and friendly setting and to prepare them for presenting papers at future conferences. If you require further information about presenting a poster at the ASMCF annual conference, please contact the ASMCF postgraduate representative, Joanna Warson: [log in to unmask]

Proposals for papers and panels (with contact details) should be sent to Fiona Barclay ([log in to unmask]) and Cristina Johnston ([log in to unmask]) by 1 February 2011.
