CFP: Empire and material culture

Kevin Morrison Discussion

The Society for Global Nineteenth-Century Studies ( is seeking a few papers on any aspect of empire and material culture (with a slight preference for papers exploring museum collections, cultures of collecting, etc.) to be included in the program of its 2023 world congress in Singapore (19-22 June). These papers will join panels that have already been formed.  The theme of the congress is “Comparative Empire: Conflict, Competition, and Cooperation, 1750-1914.” While remote participation may be possible, we would be especially interested in presenters who are able to join us in person.

The deadline for submissions has already passed. Therefore, proposals will be considered on a first-come, first served basis.
