The Consortium on the Revolutionary Era (CRE) invites proposals for its 53rd annual conference to be held February 2-4, 2023, at Fort Worth, Texas coordinated by Louisiana State University in Shreveport and the University of North Texas. Conference hotel is the Sheraton Fort Worth Downtown. The CRE welcomes papers on any topic related to the period 1750-1850 in any geographical location. While the conference has traditionally welcomed scholars focusing on Europe, the United States, and the Atlantic World, we would also welcome panels that expand our understanding of the Revolutionary Era in the Pacific, Latin America, Africa, and all places in between.
The coordinators invite submissions of both individual papers and fully formed sessions from faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars working in any discipline and on any topic exploring the Revolutionary Era. For the 2023 meeting, the coordinators will consider paper and panel proposals on all aspects of the era. Submissions of pre-organized panels and roundtables are strongly encouraged. Panel and paper proposals will clearly explain their topics and questions in ways that will be understandable to the broad constituents of the CRE, not only to those interested in the specific topics in question. Additionally, the CRE encourages the representation of the full diversity of its constituents and values panel and roundtable proposals that reflect the organization’s diversity of institutional affiliations, various career paths and ranks, gender, race, and ethnicity.
Session proposals should include a panel description; a brief abstract for each paper (no more than one page); a brief CV for each participant (no more than two pages); and AV needs if any.
Individual paper proposals should include a brief abstract (one page), brief CV (no more than two pages), and AV needs if any.
Proposals from graduate students and independent scholars are welcome.
Roundtable proposals must include a session title, the full name and institutional affiliation of each participant, a brief abstract (one page) summarizing the roundtable’s themes and points of discussion, a brief CV for each participant (no more than two pages), and AV needs if any.
The coordinators urge panel organizers to consider diversity of presenters and topics as they build their sessions.
There will be no virtual component to the 2023 conference.
