CFP: The Future of Atlantic, Transnational, and World History
Submission deadline: June 1, 2013
May 1, 2014 - May 3, 2014
Department of History, University of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh, United States
We announce a conference to be held May 1-3, 2014 at the Department of History, University of Pittsburgh.
The conference will explore four related themes in Atlantic, transnational, and world history, each introduced by a keynote speaker:
Labor: Marcel van der Linden (International Institute for Social History)
Race: Lara Putnam (University of Pittsburgh)
Empire: Richard Drayton (King’s College London)
Resistance: Vincent Brown (Harvard University)
Each keynote session will be accompanied by a panel session on the same theme. We therefore solicit papers on labor, race, empire, and resistance in Atlantic, transnational, and world historical contexts.
Our goals are to push the boundaries of boundary-less history and to imagine new ways to explore perennial subjects of historical investigation. We are especially interested in original approaches and research strategies that link small units and large processes, the local and the global, and that propose innovative ways to think about those connections.
We seek paper proposals from both established and more junior scholars. Preference may be given to those proposing to report on major work in progress. Proposals should include a title, a 250 word abstract, and a short CV. Abstracts should foreground the nature of the paper’s historiographical and methodological intervention. Please submit all queries and materials by email attachment by June 1, 2013, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
