Professor Stephen Farrall, Dr David Jeffery and I are putting together an edited collection entitled 'Thatcherism Today'. The collection considers the legacy of Thatcherism (specifically the -ism, not Thatcher herself) in the 21st century.

The book is divided into four sections, one of which is "Citizens and Societies".

We are currently seeking abstracts for chapters which fit in the "Citizens and Societies" section. We would particularly welcome chapters which address the extent to which the current Conservative Party membership is Thatcherite, but this is not essential. All proposals should address the central theme of Thatcherism as it exists today: we will not consider papers that do not.

Abstracts of 200 words and an author biography of no more than 40 words are requested by September 11th 2018. Please submit abstracts/enquiries to antony.mullen@dur.ac.uk.

Submissions from women are especially welcomed.
