Conference and Workshops

Within the scheme of the project we will conduct two workshops (October 2014 and November 2015) and an international conference (April 2015). The first working meeting was devoted to establishing a vocabulary for description and a common framework of research, which brought intellectual cohesion to our individual research projects and to the final outcome of the project. The second gathering will be devoted to the presentation of the results of the individual research projects and to discussing the book’s content.

Both workshops will be conducted in the presence of two leading specialists in the field.

The international conference entitled “Anatomy of Political Bodies” is conceived as an interdisciplinary platform intended to bring together early career researchers (PhD students and recent PhD holders) dealing with various aspects of political bodies in the pre-modern and contemporary world. We will welcome contributions from all those interested in the mechanisms which lead to their emergence, consolidation and contestation in different sociocultural, geographical and chronological contexts.

Bursaries covering costs of accommodation in Warsaw during the period of the conference will be provided by the organizers.
