Call for Proposals: “The Global South in World History”

James Madison University, 4-6 November, 2022

The Southeast World History Association Invites Proposals for its 34th Annual Meeting

The non-binding theme for this year’s conference is “The Global South in World History.” Our topic invites participants to consider how peoples, societies, and events in the Global South (Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia, and Oceania) have shaped history. Papers might address political developments, ideas and mentalities, cultural practices, networks or modes of exchange, human migrations, and environmental change. Presenters could discuss colonization and decolonization, modernization, and identity. Topics concerning the historiography or public history of the Global South are welcome. As always, SEWHA also welcomes proposals about other regions, peoples, and questions in world history.
