The third EEASA conference will be held at the University of Bayreuth (Germany), 13-15th December 2012.
"Empires and Imagination in Early America and the Atlantic World"
What role did representation and vision play in the construction of empire? What kinds of alternative visions of empire did politicians, authors and artists offer? How did metropolises conceive of empires? What kind of administrative imaginary was molded through the experience of governing an empire? And how did colonial outposts frame their own vision, how did they inject their ideas into prevailing metropolitan frameworks, and did they manage to do so? How did natives conceive of the newcomers?
Beyond this very global theme, EEASA remains an opportunity for all European and North American (and others) specialists of Early America to present research in progress. The conference will thus be open to all scholars who want to confront their current work to the questioning of fellow participants and panelists. EEASA welcomes applications on all periods of American and Atlantic history, from the Columbian encounter to the Civil War.
