Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850
(formerly Consortium on Revolutionary Europe, 1750-1850)
The 2012 meeting of the Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850 will be taking place in Baton Rouge, LA Feb. 23-25, 2012. Hosted by Louisiana State University, all of the conference events will be taking place at the downtown Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center Hotel, with easy access from the airport and within walking distance of many museums and restaurants. The conference begins on the Thursday after Mardi Gras; consider coming early, and bringing the family!
We are soliciting panel proposals treating any aspect of history, literature, or art or music history on the period from 1750 to 1850. Although the conference groupís traditional focus has been on Europe, we are eager to globalize our perspective and welcome scholars working on the Americas, Asia and Africa. The Consortium also publishes Selected Papers for each annual meeting.
Keynote speakers will include Woodruff Smith, University of Massachusetts, Boston (emeritus), Alison Frank, Harvard University, and Darius Spieth, of Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge.
The program committee prefers proposals for complete sessions (three papers, plus a chair and a commentator). However, we will accept proposals for incomplete sessions, and even individual paper proposals. Session proposals should include name of presenter, title of paper, and brief abstract (no more than one page single-spaced) for each paper; and brief CVs (no more than 2 pages) for each participant. The deadline for proposals is October 20, 2011.
