Call for submissions: Across Frontiers Beyond Borders: Transatlantic History 1400-2004
September 30th, 2004
The History Department of the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) and the Transatlantic History Student Organization (THSO) are sponsoring the Fifth Annual Graduate Student Workshop on Transatlantic History. Since 1999 this workshop has provided a venue to discuss the comparative and transnational/ transcultural character of the interrelations and interactions between and among the peoples of the Atlantic World.
From Africa’s shores to the American West, from South America’s rainforests to the European Bosporus, the Atlantic World has been the site of social, cultural, economic and political encounters that have transformed people and places. The purpose of UTA’s interdisciplinary workshop is to bring together graduate students to explore the transatlantic interrelations and interchanges over the last five centuries.
Graduate students from history and other disciplines are invited to submit a 300-word abstract and abbreviated curriculum vitae by May 31, 2004. Authors of papers accepted for a 20-minute presentation will be notified by June 30, 2004. A limited number of travel funds for participants coming to the workshop will be provided by THSO. Please email your abstract to one of the contacts below.
Note: Be sure to include your email and regular mailing address to ensure that you can be reached during the summer of 2004.
