Call for Papers: Underrepresented Voices of the American Revolution

Massachusetts Historical Society
Suffolk University

July, 2022

Proposals Due: 4 January 2021

The lead up to the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence offers an opportunity to highlight the latest scholarship on underrepresented voices of the American Revolution. This conference invites scholars from various disciplines to submit papers that explore the broad themes associated with those not traditionally considered in discussing the American Revolutionary Era, including but not limited to the perspective of Native Americans, women, African Americans, loyalists, ethnic and religious minorities, children, or neutrals. Additionally, this conference will serve both scholars and K-12 educators by providing a platform to consider how the classroom serves as a key site of historical representation. Teachers will be invited to attend the traditional academic sessions, and scholars in turn will be invited to participate in a concluding teacher workshop at the end of the conference. Learn more.

The conference and workshop will take place at Suffolk University and the Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston on 14-16 July 2022. The panels and presentations will take place on 14-15 July with the teacher workshop on 16 July. Note that all papers for presentation must be ready for precirculation to commenters and conference registrants six weeks prior to the conference date.

Interested parties are encouraged to submit either individual paper presentations or full panels (with or without commenters) by 4 January 2021. Application materials must include a paper description and CV for individual submissions and paper descriptions and individual CVs along with a panel proposal for full panels. Paper proposals should not exceed one page and accompanying CVs should not exceed five pages in length. Please submit application materials and/or questions to research@masshist.org
