CFP: British Group in Early American History 2011 Conference

The British Group in Early American History has issued a call for papers for its 2011 meeting, which will be held September 9-11, 2011, at the University of Kent at Canterbury. The theme of the conference is " 'The Growing Daughter': Economies and Cultures in the Development of Early America, 1600-1820." The call for papers states:
The conference organisers welcome proposals for individual papers; for complete panels (of typically three speakers), or for roundtables and other emerging conference formats. . . . The themes of this year’s conference—Economies and Cultures in the Development of Early America—will offer delegates the opportunity to think afresh about the development (broadly defined and interpreted) of the British American colonies. In particular, it is hoped that discussions will re-visit the economic history of the colonies and will test the possibilities of blending economic analysis with the study of political institutions and cultures in assisting or obstructing the development of Early America. Interested participants should also feel free to submit proposals in their own areas of interest.
Proposals (one page for individuals, three pages for a panel or collective presentation) should be submitted directly to conference coordinator Will Pettigrew at w.pettigrew@kent.ac.uk by June 10, 2011. Proposals should include a very brief c.v., contact details, and indication of audiovisual needs. For more details, see the complete call for papers.
