Call for Papers

52nd Annual Meeting of the Consortium on the Revolutionary Era

Extended Deadline

The Consortium on the Revolutionary Era invites proposals for its 52nd annual conference to be held in person February 10-12, 2022, at Mississippi State University in Starkville.  The Consortium (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 to include the Pacific, Latin America, Africa, and all places in between.    

We invite submissions of both individual papers and fully formed sessions from professors, graduate students, and independent scholars working in any discipline and on any topic exploring the Revolutionary Era.  While we are committed to an in-person meeting, pending a sufficient number of submissions and the health and safety of our members and participants, we will accept several remote sessions as well. In addition to standard sessions (three or four papers, plus a chair and a commentator) and roundtables (five or six ten-minute presentations), we will also consider any innovative ideas for session formats.

Session proposals should include a panel description, a brief abstract for each paper (no more than one page), and a brief CV for each participant (no more than 2 pages.) Individual paper proposals should include a brief abstract (one page) and CV (no more than 2 pages).  Proposals from graduate students and independent scholars are welcome.  We urge panel organizers to consider diversity of presenters and topics as they build their sessions. Preference will be given to panels that capture gender, racial, and stage-in-career diversity. Please submit proposals to Dr. Marc Lerner ( by the updated deadline of November 15, 2021.
