Call for papers: Agents through Time: How Do People “Make History”?

International Conference | July 7-8, 2016

Call for Papers | March 20, 2016

In the framework of Cost Action IS1205 “Social Psychological dynamics of historical representations in the enlarged European Union” an international conference is organised by the Department of Psychology in collaboration with the Department of History and the Centre for Irish-German Studies, from University of Limerick.

The conference “Agents through Time: How Do People “Make History”?” will focus on the relevance of history in contemporary people’s lives. How history is being represented contributes to shaping current ethnic, national and European identities. Representations of history elicit group-based emotions that influence behaviours and may lead to intergroup conflicts or reconciliation in Europe and beyond.

The organisers are inviting submissions of individual presentations, poster presentations, or symposia/panels.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 20 March 2016 and can be done here. The deadline for conference registration is 25 May 2016.
