The Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850 (CRE) is an organization which provides a venue for the presentation of original research on not only the revolutionary history of Europe in this era, but also the Atlantic World and beyond. We welcome proposals from the allied disciplines and comparative studies; in short, we offer a platform for research into the revolutionary era broadly defined.
The 2009 conference will be held February 19-21 at the Savannah DeSoto Hilton located in the heart of the historic district of Georgia's First City. It is conveniently located to allow enjoyment of the pedestrian tourism for which Savannah is renowned. The hotel is easy walking distance of the historic squares originally laid out by General Oglethorpe in the 1730's, City Market, and many excellent restaurants. Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport is served by AirTran, American Eagle, Continental Express, Delta, Northwest, United Express, and US Airways. The airport also features a variety of commercial shuttles and full taxi service into Savannah.
The program committee prefers proposals for complete sessions (three papers, plus chair and a commentator). However, we will accept proposals for incomplete sessions, and individual paper proposals. Session proposals should include name of presenter, title of paper, and brief abstract (no more than one page) for each paper; and brief CVs (no more than 2 pages) for each participant. The deadline for proposals is October 15, 2008. We are looking for traditional presentations of new research, as well as roundtable discussions. Proposals from doctoral students are welcome.
