On 27-29 April 2011 the Roosevelt Study Center in Middelburg, The Netherlands, will host the conference:
“The U.S. South and Europe”.
The U.S. South has always been a distinct region but in recent years this section of the United States has emerged, according to New York Times journalist Peter Applebome, “as a dominant economic, political and cultural force in American life. To understand America, it is necessary to make sense of the South.” This Middelburg conference aims to explore the historical relationship between the American South and Europe from colonial times to the present era of globalization. Papers are invited to address economic, political, ideological, military, religious, and cultural aspects of this transatlantic relationship between Dixie and Europe in general or to focus on particular southern states/cities/organizations/individuals and their relationship with Europe/European countries/organizations.
Historians interested in presenting a paper at this conference are invited to send by email a one-page proposal before October 15, 2010 to the Roosevelt Study Center, in Middelburg, the Netherlands, e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Oral paper presentations should not exceed 20 minutes. Hotel expenses and meals of the paper presenters at the conference will be covered but conference participants are expected to cover their own travel expenses.
