The Seven Years' War, also known as the French & Indian War, has been called the war for empire because the conflict redrafted the imperial map of North America and set the geographical and political pattern of the American Revolution and the political settlement it imposed on the continent. For Native Americans the conflict was more of a war for the defense of homelands and the political alliances protecting them. This conference explores these issues through cultural encounter, accommodation and conflict during one of the defining events of the 18th century. Keynoted by Fred Anderson, the conference includes presentations and comments by Rene Chartrand, Catherine Desbarats, Jonathan Dull, Alison Games, Donald Graves, Eric Hindraker, Woody Holton, Paul Mapp, Greg Nobles, Dean Jacobs and Tim Shannon. Early registration due by 9/29; late registration until 10/21.
