We invite paper proposals for the biennial conference of The Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction (FEEGI) to be held at Georgetown University, Washington, DC on February 22-23, 2008. FEEGI, an AHA affiliate, is an international organization of scholars dedicated to encouraging scholarship and collaboration across the boundaries of national histories and disciplinary frameworks. To facilitate this, all sessions at FEEGI meetings are usually plenary.
For the 2008 conference, work that engages the theme of “empire and identity” is especially encouraged. We will consider individual proposals on any theme in the fields of European expansion or global interaction during the early modern period, broadly defined as the fourteenth century to the middle of the nineteenth century. Panels are welcome, but may be re-organized to fit a larger program organized thematically in order to encourage comparative thinking outside the bounds of regional histories. FEEGI will provide partial subsidy to a limited number of graduate student presenters.
Proposals should include a 250-word abstract of the paper and an abbreviated c.v. Electronic submissions are preferred, and attachments should be in MS Word .doc format. Those who prefer a hard-copy submission must provide four (4) copies of the abstract and c.v. Proposals must be received by 1 September 2007.
