The Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction (FEEGI) invites paper proposals for its thirteenth biennial conference to be held February 14-15, 2020 at Saint Louis University.
FEEGI conferences investigate the histories of places and people touched directly and indirectly, advantageously or catastrophically, by European overseas expansion. Our conferences provide an opportunity for exchange about the circumstances, causes, and consequences of increased global interaction in the early modern period (roughly 1450 to 1850). We welcome proposals exploring political, economic, and socio-cultural interactions from a variety of fields and perspectives. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches.
One hallmark of FEEGI conferences is the creation of an intellectual space for comparative thinking and interaction among scholars across traditional temporal, geographic, and imperial boundaries. To promote such dialogue the Program Committee configures panels to make deep thematic connections, and all our sessions are plenary.
Please enter proposals for individual papers no later than 15 August 2019 on http://www.feegi.org/conferences. Submissions should include a 200-400 word abstract as well as a brief (1-2 page) C.V. We welcome submissions from advanced graduate students; we hope to provide financial support to graduate students who present.
For those planning to attend the conference, FEEGI has arranged a block of rooms at Hotel Ignacio <https://www.hotelignaciostl.com/> at the conference rate of $155/night. Please contact them at 314-977-4411 or Reservations@hotelignaciostl.com, and mention FEEGI conference when you book.
