CfP: “Alcohol Flows Across Cultures: Drinking Cultures in Transnational & Comparative Perspective”

A call for papers has been issued for a research symposium on alcohol consumption across cultures that will take place at St. Anne’s College, Oxford at the end of June, 2016. Full details follow below.

Alcohol flows across cultures: Drinking cultures in transnational and comparative perspective

Wednesday 29 June 2016 – Thursday 30 June 2016
Location: St Anne’s College, Oxford

Details

International Research Symposium

Alcohol consumption is currently seen as a major public health hazard across the globe. The medicalisation of alcohol use has become a prominent discourse that guides policy makers and impacts public perceptions of alcohol and drinking. This symposium intends to map the historical and cultural dimension of these phenomena and to trace the development of changing attitudes to consumption and historical and contemporary representations of alcohol and drinking in different regions, from the pre-modern to the postcolonial period. Emphasis is on the connected histories of different regions and populations across the globe in terms of their consumption patterns, government policies, economics and representations of alcohol and drinking. This transnational perspective facilitates an understanding of the local, transnational and global factors that have had a bearing on alcohol consumption and legislation and on the emergence of particular styles of ‘drinking cultures’. A comparative approach helps identify similarities, differences and crossovers between particular regions and pinpoint the parameters that shape alcohol consumption, policies and perceptions. The exploration of plural drinking cultures within any one particular region, their association with particular social groups, and their continuities and changes in the wake of wider global, colonial and postcolonial economic, political and social constraints and exchanges will be important dimensions of analysis.

Compensation for travel expenditure and local hospitality during the conference is aimed at but cannot be guaranteed. The closing date for abstracts (300 words) is 10 January 2016. Please indicate the primary source base of your contribution in your abstract, and clearly state your research questions, aims and arguments.

The History and Philosophy of Psychology (HPP) Section is seeking symposia, individual oral paper presentations, theory reviews, and conversation session submissions.

This year we are encouraging symposium submissions as it will allow us to better manage time restrictions and group presentations within the parameters of CPA’s programming guidelines.

We are asking that all proposals be submitted through both CPA’s online system and to HPP’s Program Co-Chairs; we hope to avoid some of the issues encountered in previous years when only the CPA online system has been used. Please submit your proposals to one of the Program Chairs – Patric Plesa (patricplesa@rogers.com) or Wanda Power (wpower@sfu.ca) – as well as through the CPA website listed above.

We hope to put together a dynamic program for our Section, and we look forward to receiving your submissions. We have also prepared a “submission guideline” as the CPA submission portal has changed this year. We apologize for any cross-posting.

With best wishes,
Patric Plesa & Wanda Power
