The L. R. Wilson Institute for Canadian History at McMaster University, in association with the Department of Humanities at Mount Royal University, invite historians of 18th and 19th century British North America/Canada to submit paper proposals for a two day workshop entitled, “British North America’s Global Age,” to be held the 24 and 25 May 2012 at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
This workshop will bring together scholars working on a wide range of topics and perspectives: historians examining politics, economies, the environment, culture, the labour movement, gender, race, sexuality and colonialism are all encouraged to participate. We are aware that ties to the global can come in a variety of forms: theoretical, ideological, personal, political, familial, and even, affective.
The papers selected will be made available to participants beforehand. As such, we are seeking original, previously unpublished and archival researched contributions, between 20 and 25 pages in-length in advance of the workshop. It is our intent to hold short presentations followed by a longer discussion of each submission. Through such an event our goal is to foster an informed and constructive dialogue on the state of the historical literature relating to BNA, its ties to the larger world, and to consider how such scholarship has transformed how we think about and teach the history of BNA.
Following the workshop, presenters will have an opportunity to revise and submit their scholarship to a peer-reviewed collection that the organizers will put together on this topic.
Please submit a 250-word abstract, title, and a CV to both Dr. Dan Horner
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Jarett Henderson (email@example.com) by 11 November 2011.
