(formally Consortium on Revolutionary Europe, 1750-1850)
The 2006 meeting of the Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850 will be taking place in Atlanta, GA March 2-4, 2006. Hosted by Georgia State University, most of the conference events will be taking place at the Downtown Atlanta Hilton, with easy access from the airport by MARTA train and within walking distance of most Atlanta attractions. Consider bringing the family: the new Atlanta Aquarium is due to open in late 2005!
We are soliciting panel proposals treating any aspect of history, literature, or art or music history on the period from 1750 to 1850. As this is our inaugural meeting with our new name, which is meant to encourage broad geographical coverage, we are especially hopeful that scholars working on the Atlantic World and other regions will consider attending the Consortium. The Consortium also publishes Selected Papers for each annual meeting.
Keynote speakers will include Laurent Dubois of Michigan State University, Michael Broers of Oxford University, and Linda Colley of Princeton University.
The program committee prefers proposals for complete sessions (three papers, plus a chair and a commentator). However, we will accept proposals for incomplete sessions, and even individual paper proposals. Session proposals should include name of presenter, title of paper, and brief abstract (no more than one page single-spaced) for each paper; and brief CVs (no more than 2 pages) for each participant. The deadline for proposals is October 15, 2005.
Email submissions are acceptable; please attach documents in word format.
Though not yet updated with information for the 2006 Conference, the Consortiumís website will contain details shortly, as well as links to an on-line proposal submission form. The web address is provided below
