Conference: Port Cities in World History

Fort William Calcutta, 1866 (East India Company)
On March 26-28, 2014, the World History Association will offer a symposium in Barcelona, Spain, on "Port Cities in World History." The meeting will be hosted by the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The preliminary program, which also contains abstracts of the papers, is now available. The call for papers indicated that proposals pursuing "interdisciplinary, local-to-global, comparative, or international approaches" would be welcome; the wide-ranging program reflects those criteria.
    Please visit the symposium website for additional information about registration and accommodations. Note that registration at the regular rate ends on February 28, 2014.
