The Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction [FEEGI] invites paper proposals for its ninth biennial conference to be held in New Orleans, LA, on February 21-22, 2014. FEEGI is interested in papers that explore early modern interactions from a variety of perspectives, across national and geographical categories, in an attempt to enhance our understanding of the global consequences of European expansion in the early modern world. Thus, we are interested in creative approaches from a variety of fields and disciplines to the study of the expansion of Europe and the world-wide response to that expansion.
As our conference utilizes plenary sessions, we prefer individual paper proposals. In rare circumstances, panels may also be submitted for consideration; panels may also be re-organized to fit a larger program organized thematically in order to encourage comparative thinking outside the bounds of regionally- and chronologically-bounded histories. If you are interested in organizing a panel, please send an email to the address below first to check on whether it would be appropriate; papers should still be submitted individually.
FEEGI hopes to provide some financial support to graduate students who are on the program.
Please enter proposals for individual papers no later than Monday, September 16, 2013 on FEEGI'S website, http://www.feegi.org/conferences.htm. Proposers will be prompted to submit a paper title, 250-300 word abstract, and the name, affiliation, and contact information of the presenter, along with an abbreviated CV of no more than 500 words.
Please send any questions, comments, or notification of trouble with online submissions to: Philip J Stern, Department of History, Duke University, firstname.lastname@example.org
