Subject: CFP: Future of Atlantic, Transnational & World History
CALL FOR PAPERS
“The Future of Atlantic, Transnational, and World History”
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
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.
