The Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction is pleased to announce inaugural prizes to promote research and to recognize exceptional scholarship on the subject of global interactions from the fourteenth through the nineteenth centuries. FEEGI is a membership organization that fosters scholarly inquiry into the world-wide consequences of maritime and overland expansion in a period of significant transformation. FEEGI encourage scholarship and collaboration across the boundaries of national histories and disciplinary frameworks.
FEEGI prizes recognize both exemplary and path-breaking work in the area of cross-cultural or trans-regional investigations of the early-modern past, broadly construed. Only members of FEEGI are eligible for these prizes. To join FEEGI, go to http://feegi.org/membership.htm
