Remaking North American Sovereignty: Towards a Continental History of State Transformation in the Mid-Nineteenth Century will be held from July 30 to August 1, 2015 at the Banff Center in Banff, Alberta. Taking place amidst the 150th anniversaries of Canadian Confederation (1867), the restoration of the Mexican Republic (1867), the end of the U.S. Civil War (1865), and wars between these states and indigenous nations, this conference considers these events from a transnational, continental perspective.
