The SSFH Annual Conference.

The Society for the Study of French History
2018 Annual Conference
‘Political Economy and Cultures of Inequality’
University of Warwick
9-10 July 2018

REGISTRATION AND PROGRAMME NOW LIVE HERE

Public concerns about inequality have grown in recent years. They do so at a time when historians are turning their attention increasingly to political economy. Thomas Piketty’s Le capital au XXI siècle (2013) has been especially influential in sparking debates over the history of inequality and political economy, and it is to these debates that this conference seeks to contribute. How have political and economic cultures come together to create, reinforce or contest inequality? How has inequality been conceptualised in France and the francophone world? And what impact have wealth inequalities had on politics and culture? In engaging with these themes, participants should feel free to interpret them in the broadest possible terms.

Invited speakers include:
Michael Kwass (Johns Hopkins University), Marie-Emmanuelle Chessel (Sciences Po) and Jackie Clarke (University of Glasgow). There will also be a round-table on the conference theme as well as a special panel in honour of seiziémiste Mack Holt and another in memory of Richard Bonney, a founding member of the Society and founding editor of the associated journal, French History.

Organising committee: Pierre Purseigle, Penny Roberts and Charles Walton: SSFH2018@warwick.ac.uk   

 

 

The Society for the Study of French History
Colloque Annuel 2018
« Economie politique et cultures des inégalités »
University of Warwick
9-10 juillet 2018

 

La question des inégalités a pris, ces dernières années, une place de choix dans le débat public. Les historiens, quant à eux, portent un intérêt croissant à l’économie politique. La publication du livre de Thomas Piketty, Le capital au XXIème siècle (2013), a provoqué un vif débat sur les approches historiques des inégalités auquel ce colloque entend contribuer. De quelle manière l’économie comme les cultures politiques s’articulent-elles pour créer, renforcer ou dénoncer les inégalités ? Comment la question des inégalités a-t-elle été conceptualisée en France et dans l’espace francophone? Quel impact la répartition inégalitaire des richesses a-t-elle eu sur la vie politique et culturelle? Nous encourageons les participants à interpréter ce thème aussi librement qu’ils le souhaitent.

Conférences plénières données par:
Michael Kwass (Johns Hopkins University), Marie-Emmanuelle Chessel (Sciences Po) and Jackie Clarke (University of Glasgow).
