Please join us for the Digital Antiquarian Conference one month from today! The conference from May 29-30, 2015 will open up questions related to digitization, cataloguing, and research design, exploring applications of digital tools and methods to diverse library materials, and identifying needs and opportunities in the development of critical bibliography appropriate to 21st-century tools.
H-Caribbean is an H-Net network sponsored by the Association of Caribbean Historians. This network seeks to overcome the linguistic, political, and geographic fragmentation that has traditionally characterized the field and region; provide access to debates and discussions on Caribbean studies; act as a resource to academics teaching and researching in associated fields; and reinforce the growing awareness of the region as an important and rich area for further research and study.
The History Department of the University of Utah will host a two-day symposium entitled “New Scholarship on the Black Atlantic” on October 2-3, 2015. We welcome proposals for papers that address transnational connections and diasporic identities from scholars who enter the study of the Black Atlantic from a variety of geographical locations, including Africa, the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean. Although we encourage those working in an interdisciplinary mode to apply, preference will be given to scholars whose primary training is in History.
