War College of the Seven Years’ War

at Fort Ticonderoga

May 20-22, 2022


The world is only just emerging from a shared experience of trauma. The global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic reminds us that the historical events of the past too were often experienced globally, and the Seven Years’ War is no exception. The global experience, and implications, of this conflict have shaped our world and provide a useful way to reflect on how global events play out at local scales. Considering the macro and the micro of the global conflict, Fort Ticonderoga seeks proposals for papers broadly addressing the period the Seven Years’ War for its Twenty-Sixth Annual War College of the Seven Years’ War to be held May 20-22, 2022.


We seek new research and perspectives of one of the most important military and political events of its era, covering a diverse range of topics and perspectives from across the global Seven Years’ War. We welcome paper proposals from established scholars in addition to graduate students, museum professionals, and others that relate to the origins, conduct, and repercussions of the Seven Years’ War. We are especially interested in topics and approaches that engage the international quality of the conflict as well as representing the variety of peoples and places involved.


We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and perspectives covering the period from the 1740s to the 1760s. Papers may include or engage:

  • Material Culture
  • Biographical Analysis
  • Campaign Histories
  • Archaeological Investigations
  • Cultural, Social, and Political Ramifications
  • Indigenous Populations

Sessions are 30 minutes in length followed by 10 minutes for audience questions. Fort Ticonderoga may provide speakers with partial travel reimbursement. Please submit a 300 word abstract and CV by email by July 15, 2021 to Richard M. Strum, Director of Academic Programs: rstrum@fort-ticonderoga.org
