Call for Papers

The Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction will hold its third
biennial meeting at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, on February
18 & 19, 2000. The Forum is concerned with the expansion of Europe and the
world-wide response to the expansion, from its beginnings in the 14th
century to the middle of the 19th century. It seeks participation by
scholars in all areas of the field and encourages submissions from
individuals with an interdisciplinary focus. Both individual and group
proposals are welcomed; proposals for round-table discussions will also be
considered. Past panels have addressed questions related to transnational
commerce, missionary activity, varieties of resistance to European
expansion, the role of law and the military in the governance of empires,
race, gender, and the emergence of colonial identity. In recognition of
this year's meeting site, the organizers would welcome papers related to
the theme "Cities, Entrepots, and Outposts," however all other topics are
also welcomed. Individual proposals should include the following: a
250-word abstract for each paper and a curriculum vitae for each
participant which provides complete contact information. Panel proposals
should also include a 250-word abstract of the panel rationale. Inquiries
and proposals should be addressed to Professor Jane Landers, Vanderbilt
University, Department of History, Box 1802 Station B, Nashville, TN
37235. Phone: (615)322-3403; Fax (615) 343-6002; E-Mail: Completed proposals must reach Jane Landers
by October 15, 1999. Further details on registration, program, and
accommodations will be posted later.
