Humanitarianism:  Past,  Present  and  Future?   8 -10  November,  2012 
 
Hosted  by:  The  Humanitarian  and  Conflict  Response  Institute  (HCRI), The  University  of  Manchester  

While  the  field  of  humanitarian  studies  is  growing  rapidly,  it  remains  unclear  if  and  in  what  way  the  research   offered  by  historians  and  social  scientists  enters  into  the  reflections  of  practitioners  and  policy  makers.    This   three-day  conference  will  explore  the  past,  present,  and  future  of  humanitarianism,  emphasising  links   between  scholars  and  practitioners  in  order  to  forge  better  understanding  of  the  humanitarian  field.    It  will   provide  a  platform  for  mutual  reflection  by  showcasing  recent  historical  and  social  science  scholarship,  while   also  involving  practitioners  as  respondents  to  such  work,  so  as  to  better  inform  both  contemporary   scholarship  and  the  practice  of  humanitarian  intervention.  

The  conference  will  be  organised  along  four  major  strands:    

1. Disasters  and  Disaster  Response:  highlighting  issues  such  as  resilience  and  agency  amongst  relief   workers  and  the  people  living  through  conflicts  and  disasters  
 
2. NGOs,  FBOs  and  Multilateral  Organisations:  focusing  on  themes  such  as  compassion  motives,  faith and  market  logic  and  competitivity     

3. Humanitarian  Technologies:  including  medical  and  logistical  developments  taking  place  in 'humanitarian crisis"

4. Humanitarian  Personnel  and  Professionalization:  focusing  on  such  concerns  as  volunteerism,  
humanitarian  space  and  the  desires  to  collaborate  which  have  shaped  humanitarian  aid  since  the   League  of  Nations

We  invite  contributions  on  the  themes  listed  above  and  related  topics.    We  welcome  submissions  from   practitioners  and  from  scholars  in  the  fields  of  history,  international  relations,  politics,  anthropology,  cultural   studies,  education  and  development  studies,  experts  in  medical  and  health  studies,  or  other  related  fields.     Full  panel  and  individual  paper  and  poster  submissions  will  be  considered.    The  deadline  for  submissions  is   the  **20th  of  April  2012. **

For  further  information  please  visit  www.hcri.ac.uk/events/.    

Please  contact  Betty-­Ann  Bristow  at  [log in to unmask]  with  any  inquiries  or  to  submit  a  paper  or  panel  proposal.
