The Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850 (CRE) provides a venue for the presentation of original research on the history of Europe, the Atlantic World and beyond. We welcome proposals from allied disciplines and comparative studies; in short, we offer a platform for research into the revolutionary era broadly defined.

The 2017 conference will be held February 23-26 at the College of Charleston and the Francis Marion Hotel located in the center of Charleston’s historic district. The conference venues are within easy walking distance of Charleston’s eighteenth- and nineteenth-century urban core, its museums, waterfront, and many exceptional restaurants.

Featured speakers for the 2017 conference include :
– Gillen d’Arcy Wood, Professor of English at the University of Illinois
at Urbana-Champaign
– Ada Ferrar, Professor of History, Latin American and Caribbean Studies
at New York University
– Caroline Winterer, Anthony P. Meier Family Professor in the Humanities
at Stanford University

The program committee prefers proposals for complete sessions (three papers, plus chair and a commentator). However, we will accept proposals for incomplete sessions and individual paper proposals. Session proposals should include name of presenter, title of paper, and brief abstract (no more than one page) for each paper; and brief CVs (no more than 2 pages) for each participant. The deadline for proposals is October 17, 2016. We welcome traditional presentations of new research as well as roundtable discussions and pedagogical panels. Proposals from doctoral students are welcome. Electronic submissions should be sent in Word or pdf format.
