Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850
High Point, NC
February 19-21, 2015
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 2015, High Point University 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.
Proposals for complete sessions, roundtables, individual papers or alternative formats are due October 24, 2014 to Frederick C. Schneid. We prefer proposals for complete sessions, but individual paper proposals are also considered. Please include a brief abstract of each paper as well as short (max 2 pages) CVs for each participant. If proposing an alternative presentation format, please describe the nature of the session. Proposals from graduate students are welcome.
2015 Keynote Speakers:
Opening keynote: Dominic Lieven, London School of Economics
Friday Lunch speaker: Virginia Aksan, McMaster University
Banquet speaker: Michael Broers, Oxford University
