The Call for Papers is now live for the fall 2022 hybrid conference, "Crafting Narratives of Empire: Contested Roots of Revolution in the Long Eighteenth Century" (Sept. 22-24, 2022, to be held in New Rochelle, NY and virtually).
Jointly hosted by the Institute for Thomas Paine Studies and the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy, this is the Fifth International Conference of Thomas Paine Studies hosted by Iona College. Dr. Steven Pincus of the University of Chicago will deliver the keynote. Dr. Elizabeth Ellis of New York University will open the conference with a talk on her forthcoming book, Power on the Margins: The Petites Nations and the Transformations of the Lower Mississippi Valley, 1650-1800.
This year's conference CFP seeks interdisciplinary work by scholars and professionals from across institutions, fields, and career levels. Presentations can take the form of individual papers, pre-formed panels, roundtables, lightning talks, posters, or non-traditional presentations (including film or other creative works)! The organizers encourage submissions across disciplinary boundaries, including history, political science, philosophy, literature, geography, communications, art history and performing arts, public history and museum studies, data science, library and information science, and the digital humanities. Presentations that consider the conference theme in relation to race, gender, and/or New York history are especially of interest. If needed, support to attend the conference in-person or virtually may be available.
Proposals due to ITPS@iona.edu by December 15, 2021. We're looking forward to reading your proposals!
