FRENCH ATLANTIC WORLDS – FRENCH ATLANTIC HISTORY GROUP CONFERENCE, MONTRÉAL, 15-17 OCTOBER 2009
The French Atlantic History Group invites proposals for individual papers or for entire sessions dealing with any aspect of the French Atlantic world during the Early Modern period, and especially with critical and comparative perspectives on the French Atlantic framework itself: its geographies, its periodizations, its compatibility with de-colonized ways of writing about the past. Scholars from fields other than history are also encouraged to submit proposals.
Given that this conference will be held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Institut d’histoire de l’Amérique française, the Group would particularly welcome reflection on French Canada/Québec’s Atlantic ties during the Early Modern period and beyond. This might include new consideration of links with France or the rediscovery of neglected historical connections with Africa and the Caribbean.
Participants will include Laurent Dubois (keynote speaker) and Daniel Usner. The Group intends to publish a volume of selected papers from the conference.
Proposals in either French or English are welcome.
