CFP: 2nd Annual Conference of the Atlantic Medieval and Early Modern Group, Halifax, August 25-26, 2014

We are pleased to announce the second annual conference of the Atlantic Medieval and Early Modern Group (AMEMG) hosted by the University of King’s College, Halifax, August 25 and 26 (Monday and Tuesday), 2014.

We are requesting submissions of abstracts for two types of sessions: 1) Proposals for the presentation of scholarly papers on any subject relating to the pre-modern world (i.e., before 1800). These we request will be kept on the short side, i.e., about 15 minutes 2) Proposals to participate in a roundtable. The latter can include discussions of: a. work in progress or new approaches to research in the field, or b. teaching or pedagogy in the field. The goal here will be to stimulate comparisons and new approaches among the panelists and audience. These would begin with about 5-10 minute presentations by each panelist, followed by extended discussion.

In order to submit proposals to the Program Committee, please send a brief (100-200 word) abstract to Edith Snook, at The deadline for submission for either type of session will be July 15, 2014.

Details about the conference, accommodations, reception and registration will be made available shortly.

If you are not a member of AMEMG, but wish to join, please contact the President, Gary Waite, at
