CFP: Looking for Panelist for NACBS 2019

Hello, I am organizing a panel for the 2019 NACBS conference and am looking for one more panelist. The panel, “Protecting Ideals of Property: Legislation, Taxation, and Masculinity in 19th Century Britain” as it is currently conceived, aims to explore changes to understandings of what constituted “property” during the long-19th century. A brief, tentative proposal follows:


Registration Open: 39th Annual Dickens Universe featuring 'Barnaby Rudge'

The Dickens Universe is a unique cultural event that brings together scholars, teachers, students, and members of the general public for a week of stimulating discussion and festive social activity on the beautiful Santa Cruz campus of the University of California—all focused on one or two Victorian novels, usually (but not always) one by Charles Dickens. In 2019, the Universe will feature Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens.

CFP: Panel on Colonial Markets/Business/Decolonization for NACBS 2019

I am looking to form a panel on colonial markets, and/or business and British decolonization.  I'm particularly interested in people working on the ways in which business shaped and was shaped by the processes of decolonization.  Papers might include the role of "indigenization" of businesses in Africa, Asia, and the West Indies; shifting trade relations, particularly the development of South-South relations; nationalization and its enemies, etc....

My own paper will examine the emergence of public relations in the 1950s and 1960s in the management of decolonization.

CFP: Panel on Smuggling for NACBS

I am organizing a panel exploring the early modern clandestine world of smuggling and mercantile frauds to propose for NACBS in Vancouver (2019). The panel is broadly conceived to include a range of perspectives on smuggling, including its global and Atlantic connections, the movement of particular commodities, the organization and practices of trafficking networks, and government and judicial responses.
