Encounters in the ‘Game-Over Era’: The Americas in Video Games
The Modern and Contemporary History Centre and the Birmingham Research Institute for History and Cultures at the University of Birmingham invites postgraduate researchers and early-career (Ph.D. awarded in the last eight years) academics to submit papers for a two-day conference sponsored by Past & Present on the theme of “everyday empires.”
I am looking for potential contributors to an anthology that I am putting together on inter-imperial dynamics, tentatively titled “Agents of Other Empires: Travelers, Merchants, Missionaries, Reformers, and Ne’er-do-Wells in Imperial History, 1500-1960”
Call for Papers
63rd Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Council of Latin American Studies (SECOLAS)
March 9-13, 2016
Proposal Submission Deadline: October 15, 2015
This book on the early southwest filibusters is most welcome, but there is a tendency in this field to overlook the half-dozen filibuster invasions of Canada in the late 1830s launched between Maine and Detroit, as significant exceptions to the much more frequent fishing in the troubled waters of Latin America.
I am looking for articles and books which study the interrelation of childhood and (European and Asian, esp. US American) imperialism, ideally from popular cultural and cultural geographical perspectives to update the Literature Review of my forthcoming first-book From Amoy to Zanesville: American Children and World Geography at the Turn pf the Twentieth Century.
Thank you so much for the suggestions!
