The 37th annual meeting of the French Colonial Historical Society (FCHS) will take place in Toronto, Canada, between June 2nd and 4th, 2011. The event will be hosted by the University of Toronto’s downtown (St. George) campus. This year’s theme will be “Bridging France’s first and second empires” but as usual, proposals on all aspects of overseas France will
be considered. Please do not send proposals for papers that have already been presented or
scheduled for presentation at other conferences, or that have already been published. The time
limit for presenting papers will be 20 minutes, and the deadline for submitting papers to the
session moderator is three weeks in advance of the conference. The Society encourages scholars from all disciplines to submit proposals.
Individual paper proposals must include a 100-200 word summary with the title of the paper, name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and phone numbers, and a brief curriculum vitae, all integrated into a single file, preferably in MS-Word. Proposals for entire sessions or panels must contain the same information on each participant, as well as contact information and a short C.V. for the moderator if you suggest one. (The program committee can help find moderators, if necessary.) Please indicate if you require audiovisual equipment in your proposal.
Individual or panel proposals should be sent to email@example.com, and will then be forwarded to the selection committee. Individuals wishing to moderate a session should send a statement of interest, contact information, and a brief c.v. to these individuals as well. The deadline for proposals is October 15, 2010.
The FCHS is a private society dependent on membership dues. All conference
participants must be or become members at the time of acceptance (January 2010).
Unfortunately, the FCHS does not have funds to subsidize scholars’ participation at the meeting.
Please check the FCHS website for further details (http://www.frenchcolonial.org).
If you have any questions about membership, please contact Jennifer Palmer (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have any questions about conference logistics, please contact Eric Jennings, Local Arrangements (email@example.com).
