Omohundro Institute annual conference will take place at the University of Pittsburgh on June 13-16, 2019. The program committee
invites papers that consider the relationship between the local and the global in shaping a vast early American history. Inspired by the role that local conflicts in the Pittsburgh area played in triggering the global Seven Years’ War, we particularly welcome proposals that consider the relevance of the global turn in early American history and that engage critically with geographically-bounded frames of reference (be they regional, continental, hemispheric, oceanic, or global). We further encourage proposals that creatively recognize the importance of typically marginalized subjects in the interplay between local and global events, including, but not limited to, new research on race, ethnicity, slavery, gender, sexuality, class, Native studies, environmental studies, and free and coerced labor and migration.For complete information on types of sessions, rules of participation, and submission details, please see the full call for papers.
