The 1904 Anglo-French Convention concerning Newfoundland and West Africa was an important, but sometimes overlooked component of the "entente cordiale." This symposium places the convention in its international, imperial and local contexts and, in particular, will examine the background to, and the significance of the clauses dealing with the Newfoundland fisheries. Speakers include John Keiger (Salford), Pascal Venier (Salford), Claire Sanderson (Paris, members of the Memorial University faculty, and researchers from St-Pierre et Miquelon. Workshops will address researching and writing Newfoundland's French history. The conference is free, open to the general public, and takes place in St. John's (September 17-18) and Corner Brook (September 19-20), Newfoundland.
