Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850
February 25-27, 2016
The Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850 (CRE) is an organization of member schools dedicated to the promotion of research on the Revolutionary Period. The CRE provides an annual venue for the presentation of original research on the history of Europe, the United States, Latin America, the Atlantic World and beyond during the Age of Revolution. In 2016, Louisiana State University-Shreveport will host the annual meeting. We are soliciting panel/paper proposals treating any aspect of history and welcome proposals from allied disciplines and comparative studies. In short, we offer a platform for research into the Revolutionary Era broadly defined. Annual conferences are not theme-based so a broad array of panels/papers is encouraged, including linked sessions on important anniversary events.
