The Historical Discourse Working Group would like to announce its first international conference 'English and German Nationalist and anti-Semitic Discourse' to be held at Queen Mary, University of London on 10-11 September 2010.

The conference organisers, Professor Felicity Rash and Dr Stefan Baumgarten, invite proposals in the form of abstracts of about 150-200 words on relevant topics in the analysis of pre-1945 nationalist, colonialist or anti-Semitic discourse. We welcome contributions which discuss issues of methodology or which adopt interdisciplinary approaches, and we hope to foster debate on points of contact between linguistics and the historical analysis of political and ideological discourse. We would be particularly interested in contributions on nationalist figures who are less well-represented in discourse research. It is hoped that academic colleagues at all levels of their careers, including postgraduate students, will offer to present papers or lead workshops.

The conference will be one of the events organised as part of the major research project 'The Discourse of German Nationalism and Anti-Semitism 1871-1924' funded by the Leverhulme Trust and led by Prof. Felicity Rash and Dr Geraldine Horan. The project web-site will be live from 1 June 2009.

Key note speakers will include Ruth Wodak and Andreas Musolff.

It is intended that the conference proceedings will be published.

Please send expression of interest and abstracts to Dr Stefan Baumgarten by 15 January 2010; email: s.baumgarten@qmul.ac.uk
