For an interdisciplinary panel proposal on the early American Pacific at the annual meeting of the California American Studies Association (CASA) April 16-17, 2010, we are seeking paper proposals under the theme "rebellion and revolution in comparative colonial context."
Proposals need not be limited to California topics: CASA is an American Studies association in California, not a California Studies organization. We seek papers that explore flash points in the construction and contestation of relations of power in the early Pacific basin from the sixteenth century into the nineteenth century. Papers might focus on uprisings in and around the Pacific (islands, shorelines, ships, or missions), on the transportation of Atlantic revolutionary ideas into the Pacific, or on comparative Atlantic-Pacific resistance. Papers addressing Atlantic World themes will be considered if they help identify comparative themes with the Pacific.
Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief (1-2 page) CV to both Michelle Burnham (MBurnham@scu.edu) and James Spady (firstname.lastname@example.org), the panel organizers. We will need the proposals not later than Jan 10, 2010 in order to make the Jan 15 deadline for the conference.
