CFP British Group of Early American Historians’ Conference

Cardiff University

Friday–Saturday, 2–3 September 2022

The British Group of Early American Historians invites submissions for conference papers and panels on early American history for its annual conference taking place at Cardiff University in September 2022. The organisers conceive of early America quite broadly, and invite submissions from scholars working on North America and its Caribbean and Atlantic nodes and connections. This year, papers related to the history of borders are particularly welcome. There will also be space to discuss events related to the United States Semiquincentennial in July 2026, and proposals related to the American Revolution, its British and European contexts, and its commemoration will be warmly received.

Please email proposals for single papers or panels to the Programme Committee chair, Dr Rachel Herrmann, at HerrmannR@cardiff.ac.uk with the subject line BGEAH 2022. Proposals (with the name of the submitter and BGEAH in the file name) should be sent as an attachment by 15 June. Submissions should include a summary of no more than 200 words and a brief (1-2 pp) C.V.

As part of BGEAH’s ongoing commitment to national engagement, speakers are encouraged from across the UK, and funds are available to assist ECR attendees with conference expenses. In light of the lifting of Coronavirus restrictions in Wales, it is anticipated that this conference will take place in person. As of March 2022, masks are still required in all teaching spaces. We will be monitoring the situation and communicating accordingly with attendees. 

CFP Society for the History of Women in the Americas Annual Conference

Annual Conference
Friday 1st July 2022
British Library, London

The Society for the History of Women in the Americas (SHAW) welcomes
proposals for its annual conference, co-organised with the Eccles Centre for
American Studies at the British Library, London (UK).


This year’s seminar series sponsored by the Institute of Historical Research has
focused on the theme of Black Women of the political, financial, social, and
intellectual elite. The annual conference will further expand on this theme to
include Black Women’s activism at every level, from the grassroots to the elite
circles, at any point in the history of the Americas.


We encourage proposals for papers, panels or roundtables that engage with the
activism, cultural outputs, social and intellectual networks, and life experiences of Black Women activists. We are keen to engage with the British Library’s exhibition on Breaking the News and we would particularly encourage papers focused on Black women journalists. The day will include a private Show and Tell session of British Library collection items related to the themes for conference delegates.
The conference welcomes proposals from academics at any stage of their career, especially graduate students, as well as those active in civil society groups.


We invite 250 word abstracts for papers of 20 minutes length.

For full panels and roundtable discussions, please include descriptions of all papers proposed.

Please submit abstracts along with a 100-word biography of each proposed
speaker to shawsociety@gmail.com, by 28 March 2022.

Financial assistance for this year’s conference has been provided by the Eccles
Centre for American Studies at the British Library and Manchester Metropolitan
University.

Colonial Society of Massachusetts Graduate Student Forum

June 2-3, 2022

Graduate students preparing original research on any area of early American history (up to 1815) at both the MA and PhD levels are invited to submit proposals for the Colonial Society of Massachusetts’s annual Graduate Student Forum. You will discuss your work with between six and ten peers from other universities and with the Colonial Society’s members. Assuming conditions permit it, the 2022 event will be held in person at our Beacon Hill townhouse (87 Mount Vernon Street), but if necessary the event may also be held remotely, or may involve both in-person and online sessions. Policies concerning masks, tests, and vaccines will be determined by public health conditions in June, and conform to requirements by the city of Boston and guidance from public health professionals.  Presenters who travel to Boston will have all travel expenses reimbursed and will be provided accommodations in Boston.

The Forum will begin on Thursday afternoon, June 2, and will conclude Friday afternoon, June 3, with remarks by moderator Jonathan M. Chu, Professor of History in the College of Liberal Arts at UMass Boston and the editor of the New England Quarterly. Presenters should plan to outline a major finding from their research anchored in the relevant historiography.

How to Submit Your Proposal: Your proposal, not to exceed five double-spaced pages, should describe the larger historiographical intervention you seek to make with your research, as well as the specific finding, question, and/or sources you hope to share during the Forum. 

Though we may give preference to New England topics, the committee will attempt to achieve a balance in subjects covered. The committee is especially eager to hear from researchers—historians as well as scholars from allied disciplines—whose work sheds new light on the diverse peoples of early New England and/or work that puts early New England history in conversation with that of other places and peoples.

To apply, please submit your CV and proposal together as a single pdf: the filename should be Lastname.CSM2022. Please use the subject line: “CSM Grad Forum application.” Applications are due by noon on March 11, 2022.

Call for Papers : Oceans as Archives Conference

4-6 July, 2022

University of Amsterdam– The Netherlands

Organizers: Mikki Stelder (University of Amsterdam), Renisa Mawani (University of British Columbia), Kristie Flannery (Australian Catholic University)

website: www.oceansasarchives.org

After an illuminating Oceans as Archives symposium in May 2021 held at the University of British Columbia on the Traditional, Ancestral, Unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Territory (for more information click here), Oceans as Archives is returning for a second conference to be held at the University of Amsterdam from 4-6 July, 2022. We invite proposals from scholars, poets, artists, and activists to present new work that explores the ocean as a living, breathing, thinking, moving, life-sustaining and life-taking force. 

Oceans undermine existing navigational, resource and legal infrastructures that seek to harness the sea in the folds of capitalist modernity. Whereas European colonial and capitalist epistemologies separated the ocean from the land and designated the ocean as a highway for capitalism and an extractable resource, many non-Eurocentric critical traditions resist such distinctions, recognizing oceans as key to sustaining all life. Oceans and the relations it has generated through force, violence, care, ancestral belonging and spirituality have been central to Black diaspora, critical Indigenous, Pacific Islander, Caribbean, postcolonial, decolonial, and anticolonial thought. Drawing from these traditions, we approach oceans as archives that encourage new frameworks and methodologies for understanding capitalist, legal, imperialist, racial, environmental and (settler) colonial violence across Eurocentric geographical and temporal divides (Mawani 2018), while at the same time disrupting the Eurocentric spatio-temporalities of empire. 

Where Lisa Lowe (2015) brought attention to the “intimacies of four continents” as colonization and resistance made landfall, this symposium creates a space to explore and reflect on how thinking with oceans demands different imaginaries of thought and praxis that understands the ocean in relation. 

We envision a conversation that broaches what it means to think of oceans not as spaces in-between continents, but as foundational domains where colonial conquest, violence, resistance, and subversion plays on different scales, both past and present. How does such a reorientation force us to question the livingness of the sea, and its role in disrupting white superiority and species supremacy that was, and continues to be, crucial to the pursuits of European empires?

We welcome proposals for individual papers, roundtable conversations, poetry readings, visual art, performances, and curated panel discussions. There will be opportunities for works presented at the conference to be published in an anthology. 

Please submit your name, brief biography (100 words), title, abstract (250 words), and working bibliography by January 20, 2022 to oceansasarchives2022@gmail.com

We hope to offer financial assistance for untenured scholars, activists and artists on precarious (non)contracts to facilitate their participation. Please specify in your submission why you might qualify for such assistance and the funding you will need to attend this conference. If you are tenured and you would like to contribute to assisting your untenured colleagues in presenting their work through a financial donation, please let us know in your submission.

The conference is made possible through the generous support of The Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis; The Netherlands Institute for Cultural Analysis; The Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture; the European Commission; the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies; and the Faculty of Arts, University of British Columbia.

Call for Papers: Livestock as Global and Imperial Commodities: Economies, Ecologies and Knowledge Regimes, c. 1500 – present.

Commodities of Empire International Workshop, Free University Berlin, 14-15 July 2022

Livestock has played a crucial role in imperial politics, economies and societies over the past centuries. The expansion of animal raising often went hand in hand with settler colonialist land expropriation, and various animals were in many places crucial to colonial conquest and exploitation. Moreover, livestock and livestock commodities, such as meat, wool, hides and tallow were traded and consumed within and across boundaries, both imperial and non-imperial. Such commodification processes not only relied on settler livestock frontiers, but also on the transformation of indigenous livestock economies, knowledge regimes and local ecologies. They were closely tied to the global expansion of capitalism and, as such, also affected non-colonial and post-imperial spaces across the world in many similar, yet sometimes also diverging ways. However, compared to agricultural cash crops and minerals, imperial and global histories of livestock are still quite rare. This workshop addresses this important research gap. It aims to explore the different (political, economic, societal, cultural, religious, ecological and scientific) dimensions of livestock production and commodification in global and imperial history.

We broadly define livestock as domesticated animals that are raised for multiple purposes, most notably for their labour (draft, pack, riding and powering machinery); their skin, hair, horns, shells, feathers, etc. (for clothing or ornaments); their meat, milk and eggs (for nutritional purposes); their manure (as fertilizer or fuel); their body parts (for medicinal purposes); their monetary value (for barter, savings and marriage payments); or their symbolic value (for religious uses, punishments and displays of prestige). Our definition includes cattle, water buffaloes, yaks, reindeer, sheep, goats, pigs, camels, elephants, horses, mules, donkeys, llamas, alpacas, poultry and ostriches, and we would also welcome papers on (shell)fish farming. Yet, we would exclude wild animals that are hunted, exhibited and/or subjected to conservationist measures. These will be addressed in a second workshop in 2023.

Potential paper topics may relate to:

·the politics of livestock production: colonial control over land and/or pastoralist societies, local/imperial food security, capitalist expansion, international organisations such as FAO, etc.

·modes of livestock raising: nomadic, semi-nomadic and settled pastoralism and mixed farming, large-scale ranching, industrial animal farming, ownership by international corporations, etc.

·social conditions and effects of livestock production: social stratification, gender, race, caste, religious, and ethnic roles, changing labour forms and relations, (legal) regimes of land and livestock ownership, etc.

·environmental consequences: deforestation, formation of grasslands, soil erosion, (water) pollution, global warming through methane emissions, etc.

·veterinary, agricultural and environmental knowledge and technologies: (non-) circulation of knowledge, conflicting knowledge regimes and actors, scientific institutions and practices such as experimental stations, cross-breeding and selective breeding techniques, practices of disease control, etc.

·processing of livestock commodities: slaughterhouses, processing of hides, wool and dairy, techniques for dried, salted, canned, frozen and chilled meat, etc.

·trading infrastructures and networks: transport technologies, ports, trade companies, credit mechanisms, etc.

·livestock labour: transport, warfare, role in agriculture, forestry and mining for the production of other (global) commodities such as  sugar, teak or silver, etc.

·local, imperial and global uses of livestock commodities: for food, clothing, fertilizer, medicine, payments, etc.

We are interested in cases from all geographical regions and in approaches from various disciplines. In addition to historians, we welcome papers from anthropologists, sociologists, veterinary scientists, zoologists, environmentalists and other scholars working on the global and imperial history of livestock and livestock commodities.

This two-day workshop is a collaborative venture between the Commodities of Empire British Academy Research Project and the Commodifying Cattle Research Project funded by the German Research Foundation at the Free University Berlin. Following the long-standing practice of Commodities of Empire workshops, papers will be grouped in thematic panels, pre-circulated to all workshop participants, and panel discussions will be opened by a chair or discussant. Paper-givers will then have the possibility to reply succinctly, and this will be followed by open discussion. Papers presented at the workshop may be considered for publication in the Commodities of Empire Working Papers series: https://commoditiesofempire.org.uk/publications/working-papers/. We strongly encourage graduate students and other early career scholars to propose papers.

Costs of accommodation in and, within certain limits, travel to Berlin will be covered. We have special funding for scholars coming from the Global South. Please note, however, that while we aim to hold the workshop on site at the Free University Berlin, we might have to hold the workshop virtually, or in a hybrid form, depending on the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic and the (travel) restrictions it entails. 

Please e-mail expressions of interest, with a title and an abstract of no more than 300 words, by 31 January 2022 to Samuël Coghe, Free University Berlin, samuel.coghe@fu-berlin.de. We will notify authors about the acceptance of their papers by 15 March 2022. They will then be asked to submit a draft paper of approx. 5,000-6,000 words (not counting footnotes and bibliography) 3 weeks prior to the event.

CFP: Bartolomé de Las Casas: Transatlantic Reformer?

Third International Conference on Bartolomé de las Casas, June 22-24, 2022

In Charles Taylor’s provocative study, A Secular Age, he identifies Reform as a broad conviction “felt with increasing power during the Middle Ages and early modern period, that not just an élite, but as far as possible all the faithful live up to the demands of the Gospel” (104). Drawing on this expansive concept, the theme of the Third International Conference on Bartolomé de las Casas (June 22–June 24, 2022) will center on the question of Las Casas’s role as a transatlantic reformer. Papers are welcome that put Las Casas in conversation with broader trends in sixteenth-century reformations, Christian humanism and secularization as well as currents in theology, literature, philosophy, anthropology, and law. Organizers also welcome contributions that draw on approaches that address Las Casas’s mark on social discipline and print culture.

Importantly, this Lascasian conference coincides with the 500th anniversary of Las Casas’s 1522 entrance into a self-consciously reforming Dominican Order, itself an expression of trends in the renewal of religious life. Participants will benefit from and contribute to the rich combination of unique research interests afforded by this interdisciplinary invitation to consider Las Casas as a reformer in his own right. 

Proposals (in English, French, Portuguese, or Spanish) of 250 to 500 words in length and a short bio of 250 words are due by February 1st, 2022: sent to the attention of the organizers at LasCasasConference2022@gmail.com.

Accepted papers will be eligible for inclusion in a projected third double-blind peer-reviewed collection. For up to date information, visit Lascasian Studies at Providence College.

Legacies of Slavery, Racism, and Empire in the History of Medicine
12 novembre 2021 – online


For most of the 20th century, historical studies on race and medicine were long considered marginal compared to more traditional work on slave societies or colonial history. However, they have recently experienced a revival, particularly since the 2000s, and a range of books and articles have been published in English and in French. Some shed light on the relationships between the development of slavery in the United States and the emergence of new medical practices and theories used largely by white doctors to treat black bodies on plantations, others focus on experiments conducted on the bodies of the enslaved by white doctors or the use of alternative medical practices and self-administered care by the enslaved and their descendants, during and after slavery, often qualified as illegitimate by the doctors whose science was firmly rooted in the Euro-centric tradition. Some recent works have also dealt with race, medicine and imperial history, both in British and French colonies. This international symposium in English will gather scholars from France and from the United States who are currently working on French imperial history, race and medicine or on the history of slavery in the US and the medical treatment of African-American patients in the 19th and 20th centuries. This one-day event will therefore propose a unique opportunity for French and American academic audiences and students to discuss new contributions in French history, American history and the history of medicine.
