The Atlantic History Seminar announces a three-day conference, to be held at Harvard University on June 21-23, 2007, that will examine the early modern Atlantic world as a coherent area, however diverse and conflicted, whose networks of trade and communication, shared experiences, and integrative lines of influence may be investigated and explained. Papers on current research on these themes will be presented for discussion by Stephen Behrendt, Rosalind Beiler, Jorge Canizares-Esguerra, Beatriz Davilo, Aaron Fogleman, David Hancock, Linda Heywood and John Thornton, Willem Klooster, Gabriel Martinez-Serna, Mark Peterson, Emma Rothschild, Neil Safier, and Londa Schiebinger. Bernard Bailyn will open the conference with a general view of the field and chair the Conference's concluding discussion.
The Conference is open to the academic public. Graduate students and recent PhDs, as well as senior scholars, are encouraged to attend. Travel and accommodation expenses will be the responsibility of attendees; the Conference will provide lunches, a reception, and local lodging information. There is no registration fee, but pre-registration by June 1, 2007, is required. We expect the Conference to run from early afternoon on Thursday, June 21, through late afternoon on Saturday, June 23.
