CFP: FEEGI Conference

The Economic and Social History Section, History Institute, Leiden University, will partner with the Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction (FEEGI) to host a joint conference on June 2-5, 2015, under the theme "Agents, Networks, Institutions and Empires." According to the call for papers:
Agents, networks and institutions are the cornerstones of empire-building. This applies to European and non-European empires, originating in the late Middle Ages, Early Modern, Modern or Contemporary period. The agency of individuals, by themselves or in various groups and communities, forged the first contacts between colonizers and colonized. At the same time, the individual and collective capacity to negotiate personal and communal interests brought about autonomy and forms of self-government in various colonized societies. Through perennial exchanges institutions were created, changed and adapted to the needs, demands and impositions of expanding empires.
FEEGI has partnered with Leiden University to pilot a new venue in Europe to continue FEEGI’s traditional and, prominent emphasis on interactions between Europeans and non-Europeans during the age of expansion. FEEGI particularly encourages contributions regarding European and non-European empires from the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries. However, given Leiden’s long tradition of scholarship on the history of modern empire, this 2015 conference in Europe will also entertain submissions from scholars working on similar issues up to and including the period of decolonization in the 1970s.

Proposed papers must be original, based on primary sources, and embedded in analytical and theoretical insights of global, interdisciplinary or comparative history, understood in this context as global interactions. Abstracts (maximum of 300 words) should include name, academic affiliation, academic position, and contact details; title of the proposed paper; and content of the presentation. Graduate students should send a CV along with the proposed abstract. Abstracts may be submitted here. The deadline for the submission of proposals is December 15, 2014. For more details, please see the conference website.
