CfP: Cooperating Across Global Regions: Societal Actors, Transnational Mobilization, and Regional Integration 1960s-2020
Societal actors like political parties, trade unions, business organizations and non-traditional non-governmental organizations (NGOs) forge and maintain transnationally constituted informal networks and formalized organizational structures. Much has been said about how they cooperate at the regional level as in the context of the European Union (EU) or globally, where they interact with International Organizations (IOs). Instead, this exploratory workshop will focus on their cooperation at the trans-regional or trans-continental level, for example between Europe and Latin America.

As Irish Society ponders how to deal with a housing market that has shut out many from home ownership while leaving others vulnerable or homeless, this conference will explore dwellings and the concept of the home in nineteenth-century Ireland; from the Big House to an Bothán; from the Convent to the Workhouse. Papers are sought which explore the physicality and symbolism of Irish dwellings. What did it mean to have an ‘Irish’ dwelling?

N.W. Posthumus Conference: Relocating Governance in Asia. State and Society in South- and Southeast Asia, c. 1800-2000
Over the last decades, the study of governance in Asia has increasingly expanded to include a focus upon non-state entities. Historians have realized that engagement with local intermediaries, civil society organizations, power brokers, and interest groups has been crucial to the day-to-day administration of European colonies and postcolonial states alike. Historically, colonial regimes contended and interacted with pre-existing political and socioeconomic structures of the regions they occupied and sought to reshape.
