The European Information and Research Network on Parliamentary History
(EuParl.net) has previously organized international conferences on ‘The
Europe of Parliaments’ in Paris in 2012 and on ‘The Ideal Parliament’ in
The Hague in 2013 (see https://euparl.net). In its third international
conference, EuParl.net invites experts on European parliamentary studies
from various academic fields to present, discuss and rethink their latest
methodological approaches. Special attention will be paid to
anthropological, discourse analytical and oral approaches to parliamentary
institutions as well as to the implications of the digitization of
parliamentary records for research on parliaments. While individual papers
may focus on one national parliament and on a limited historical period,
comparative and transnational approaches are encouraged, and most papers
are likely to address the common European tradition of parliamentary
government, or government by discussion, in a way or another. This evolving
tradition will play a key role also when European societies face future
challenges as democratic, participatory, deliberating and innovative
societies. ****

While providing an update on current approaches to anthropological,
discourse-oriented, oral and digital parliamentary research, the conference
aims at developing these methods further so that they could to better serve
academic research in parliamentary history and related fields. It is
expected to give rise to a collected volume on current methodologies in
parliamentary studies. Furthermore, the conference and EuParl.net at large
aim at increasing understanding of the significance of parliamentary
traditions among the European publics at national and international levels.


The invited and confirmed speakers include several leading anthropologists,
linguists, historians and political theorists: Marc Abeles (Paris), Emma
Crewe (London), Shirin Rai (Warwick), Henk te Velde (Leiden), Ton van
Haaften (Leiden), Marnix Beyen (Antwerp) and Kari Palonen (Jyväskylä). ****


Proposals on methodological papers of no more than 20 minutes addressing
the following questions are invited:****


-          How do anthropologists analyse social relations, rituals and
ceremonies in parliaments and what can historians learn from these methods?*

-          How should oral history of parliaments be recorded and written?**

-          How do alternative linguistically and rhetorically oriented
strategies to analyse parliamentary history relate to each other?****

-          How can political theorists make use of historical analyses of
parliamentary discourse?****

-          What are the methodological implications and future
possibilities for parliamentary history opened by the digitization of
parliamentary records?****

Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words to
pasi.t.ihalainen at jyu.fiby 15 September 2013. The speakers will be
informed about the acceptance of
their papers by 15 October. The conference fee is expected to be 200 euros
