Workshop – 13 to 14 February 2024

Culture and Practice in the Age of Revolution

Call for Papers, deadline – 8 December 2023, 5 pm

Were the revolutions of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries made possible by the existence and dynamics of a shared cultural world? What might a cultural history of the age of revolution look like? And what is the analytical relationship between questions of culture, practice, or habitus, on the one hand, and the political and military events of revolution, on the other?

This two-day workshop at the University of Birmingham will focus on these kinds of questions, working across traditions and disciplines to interrogate wide-reaching conceptual frameworks. It will feature a keynote lecture by Professor Nathan Perl-Rosenthal (University of Southern California), as well as contributions from senior scholars including Elizabeth Amann, Marisa Linton, Maurizio Isabella, Joanna Innes, and Mark Philp.

We are seeking proposals from junior scholars for fifteen-minute papers, presenting research from across the field of the age of revolution, for inclusion in this workshop. Proposals from advanced doctoral candidates, and postdoctoral scholars who have not secured permanent academic employment, are particularly encouraged. Please send a title, 200-word abstract together with a 1-page CV to the workshop organiser, Tom Cutterham ( by 5pm on Friday 8 December. For those whose papers are selected, accommodation during the workshop, and the costs of travel within Europe, will be provided.
