The Transit of Christianity, 1500-1825:
European Aspirations and New World Realities
Applications are invited for participation in the Seminar, to meet for approximately ten days at Harvard University in the first half of August 2006. Participants, for whom travel and accommodation will be provided, must be recent recipients of the Ph.D. or its equivalent or advanced doctoral students engaged in research on aspects of Atlantic history. Members of the Seminar may be drawn from Latin American, Western European, and African universities, to be joined by U.S. and Canadian scholars who are also at an early stage of their careers, for presentation of work in progress, discussions of the theme of the Seminar, and exchange of views with senior scholars. It is hoped that some of the expenses of the participants will be defrayed by their own universities.
The theme of the Seminar for 2006 is The Transit of Christianity, 1500-1825. Work in progress on connections, Catholic and Protestant, linking parts of Europe, Africa, and the Americas will be presented and discussed. Detailed studies of specific millenarian and utopian projects and pan-Atlantic religious networks will be especially relevant.
The Seminar, under the auspices of the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History and supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is directed by Professor Bernard Bailyn.
