The Sixtieth Annual Meeting of the Society for French Historical Studies will be held at the Université du Québec à Montréal in Montréal, from Thursday, April 24, through Saturday, April 26, 2014. It will be hosted jointly by the Université du Québec à Montréal and Concordia University, with the support of the Université de Montréal and McGill University. Michel Hébert (UQAM) and Norman Ingram (Concordia) are co-Presidents of the Society for 2014 and organizers of the conference.
The theme for this year’s conference will be “war and peace in French history”, with special reference to the centenary of the beginning of World War I. Scheduled guest-speakers will be twentieth century specialists Professors John Horne (Trinity College, Dublin), Christopher Clark (Cambridge) and Martha Hanna (University of Colorado, Boulder), all of them noted scholars of France and/or the Great War; and Philippe Contamine, Emeritus Professor of medieval history and Membre de l’Institut, who will lecture on the theme of the Hundred Years War in comparison with World War I.
In addition to papers and panels on the theme of this year’s conference, the Program Committee underlines that it welcomes panel proposals on any topic in the history of France, its colonies, and other Francophone countries including, of course, Québec and Canada, from the Middle Ages to the present. We will make every effort to combine single papers into coherent panels, but we encourage individuals to organize complete panels composed of two or (preferably) three papers, including panels that cut across traditional periodizations, with a chair and a commentator. Roundtables and other formats will also be considered. In conjunction with H-France and the SFHS Technology Committee, we also welcome proposals for sessions to be webcast on topics of broad interest.
Please do not send proposals for papers that have already been presented or published or that are scheduled for presentation elsewhere. Please be very specific about your audiovisual needs at the time of submission. All conference participants must be members in good standing of the SFHS at the time of the conference.
All sessions will be held at the Université du Québec à Montréal, pavillon J.-A. De Sève. A special and very attractive hotel rate of Canadian $125.00 per night will be made available to members at the Hôtel des Gouverneurs, Place Dupuis, rue Saint-Hubert, just three short blocks from the campus.
