Deviance, Inclusion & Exclusion

This strand investigates issues related to the history of individuals, ideas, practices and organisations considered errant or dangerous to the societies in which they occur and the mechanisms of criticism, comment, control and protest that operate in these societies.

This covers the study of law, crime, deviance, forms of behaviour and the practice of inclusion and exclusion. The strand welcomes studies of the (pre)medieval, early modern or modern period. It also welcomes case studies, comparative studies across region/national boundaries as well as work investigating the theory and historiography that is relevant to research in these areas.

Proposals for papers that explore these themes in relation to any historical period or region of study or form any disciplinary perspective are welcomed. Proposals for panels of 2-3 papers and chair, discussion panels or single papers are equally welcome.
