Stockholm Conference on ‘Persistent Piracy’ Announcement and Call for Papers

The Centre for Maritime Studies (CEMAS), Stockholm University, and the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, Stockholm, supported by a grant from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, have issued a call for papers for their upcoming conference on piracy.

The conference “aims to explore, from an inter-disciplinary, transnational and inter-sectional perspective, why piracy and maritime violence under certain historical circumstances have been institutionalized. A particular focus of interest is the relation between maritime violence and state formation. The emphasis of the conference theme is on historical studies, regardless of time period or geographic region, but scholarly contributions from any discipline are welcomed, as are theoretically oriented and comparative studies.”
