Call for Papers: FEEGI 2020
The Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction (FEEGI) invites paper proposals for
its thirteenth biennial conference to be held February 14-15, 2020 at Saint Louis University.
FEEGI conferences investigate the histories of places and people touched directly and indirectly,
advantageously or catastrophically, by European overseas expansion. Our conferences provide
an opportunity for exchange about the circumstances, causes, and consequences of increased
global interaction in the early modern period (roughly 1450 to 1850). We welcome proposals
exploring political, economic, and socio-cultural interactions from a variety of fields and
perspectives. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches.
One hallmark of FEEGI conferences is the creation of an intellectual space for comparative
thinking and interaction among scholars across traditional temporal, geographic, and imperial
boundaries. To promote such dialogue the Program Committee configures panels to make deep
thematic connections, and all our sessions are plenary.
Please enter proposals for individual papers no later than 15 August 2019 on
http://www.feegi.org/conferences. Submissions should include a 200-400 word abstract as well
as a brief (1-2 page) C.V. We welcome submissions from advanced graduate students; we hope
to provide financial support to graduate students who present.
For those planning to attend the conference, FEEGI has arranged a block of rooms at Hotel
Ignacio <https://www.hotelignaciostl.com/> at the conference rate of $155/night. Please contact
