2020 Conference Info


Florida State University will be hosting the annual conference of the Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850, in Tallahassee, at the Doubletree hotel. The Consortium (CRE) provides a venue for the presentation of original research on any topic related to the period 1750-1850 in any geographical location. Although historians of Europe and the Atlantic World are a large, regular presence in the Consortium, we welcome presentations from professors, graduate students, and independent scholars working in a variety of disciplines, from a variety of comparative perspectives.

2020 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Consortium: an ideal moment for reflecting on the past and future of the field. To celebrate this occasion, the CRE is waiving the registration fees for graduate students, adjunct faculty, independent scholars, and retirees.

This year’s keynote speakers will be Marcela Echeverri, Associate Professor of History at Yale University; Christy Pichichero, Associate Professor of History at George Mason University; and Eric Weider, owner of Gallery 19c in Beverly Hills, California.

We welcome proposals for full conference sessions including both standard sessions (three twenty-minute papers, plus a chair and a commentator) and roundtables (five or six ten-minute presentations). We will also consider individual paper proposals and will work to construct sessions out of those.

Session proposals should include a panel description (if applicable), a brief abstract for each paper (no more than one page), and a brief CV for each participant (no more than 2 pages.) Proposals from graduate students are welcome. Please submit proposals to Ronen Steinberg at ronens@msu.edu by November 1, 2019.

The conference will be held at the Doubletree Hotel, located at 101 S. Adams St., Tallahassee, FL 32301.  All the rooms at the hotel have now sold out.  Please make your own arrangements for your accommodation.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Tallahassee Airport is served by American, Delta, and Silver Airlines.
