CFP: Early Modern Empires and Dissenting Religious Groups (AHA 2015, New York)

Dear H-Empire subscribers (with sincere apologies for cross-posting),

A colleague and I are trying to put together a panel for the AHA meeting in New York next year based around our mutual research interests. We intend the panel to explore examples of historical interaction between early modern empires and dissenting religious groups. Specifically, we are interested in how empires used or abused religious groups to pursue their own imperial goals, and how dissenting groups in turn adapted imperial patronage or persecution to toward their own ends.

ANN: International Summer School on “Multiple Modernities” (Göttingen, Germany, September 2014)

Explicitly or implicitly, the Euro-American path to modernity has long been taken as a standard model, indeed as a definition of modernity in general. Individualization, the rule of law, technologisation, social differentiation, and secularization were seen as its inevitable manifestations. Regions of the world falling short of this “package” have been considered as in need of development by colonial rule or other forms of tutelage.
