The Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations (SHAFR) invites proposals for panels and individual papers at its annual conference to be held June 28-30, 2012 in Hartford, Connecticut, two hours from Boston and New York.
In encouraging proposals relating to "Revolutionary Aftermaths,” the Program Committee implies a broad definition of “revolution,” applying not only to political movements such as the U.S., French, Haitian, Mexican, Bolshevik, Chinese, Cuban, Iranian, and recent Middle Eastern revolutions, but also to developments such as the industrial, communications, transportation, consumer, and green revolutions. Keeping in mind the cataclysmic vision of modernization gone bad offered by Hartford resident Mark Twain at the close of "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court," we hope the conference will foster conversations on efforts to grapple with revolutionary changes as well as the ways we make sense of such changes across space and time.
Visit our conference website to see the complete Call for Papers, details about funding opportunities, a panelists-seeking-panelists forum, and information about all that Hartford has to offer in research and entertainment opportunities.
