ENGLISH AND GERMAN NATIONALIST AND ANTI-SEMITIC DISCOURSE (1871 - 1945)

The Historical Discourse Working Group and the Leo Baeck Institute London with the support of the Centre for Anglo-German Cultural Relations would like to announce their first international conference to be held at Queen Mary, University of London on 10-11 November 2010.

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF DATE FOR THIS CONFERENCE

The conference organisers, Professor Felicity Rash, Dr Geraldine Horan, Dr Daniel Wildmann and Dr Stefan Baumgarten, invite proposals in the form of abstracts of about 150-200 words on relevant topics in the analysis of pre-1945 nationalist, anti-Semitic or colonialist discourse. We welcome contributions which discuss issues of methodology or which adopt interdisciplinary approaches, and we hope to foster debate on points of contact between linguistics and the historical analysis of political and ideological discourses. We would be particularly interested in contributions on nationalist figures who are less well-represented in discourse research. It is hoped that academic colleagues at all levels of their careers, including postgraduate students, will offer to present papers or lead workshops.

The conference will be one of the events organised as part of the major research project, The Discourse of German Nationalism and Anti-Semitism 1871-1924, funded by the Leverhulme Trust and led by Prof. Felicity Rash and Dr Geraldine Horan. The project website is http://www.sllf.qmul.ac.uk/research/nationalismproject.

Key note speakers will include Ruth Wodak and Andreas Musolff. It is intended that the conference proceedings will be published. Please send expression of interest and abstracts to Dr Stefan Baumgarten by 15 April 2010; email: s.baumgarten@qmul.ac.uk.
