The Transatlantic History Student Organization in collaboration with  the Barksdale Lecture Series, the History Department, and the College  of Liberal Arts of the University of Texas at Arlington are  sponsoring the Sixteenth Annual International Graduate Student  Conference on Transatlantic History.

Transatlantic history examines the circulation and interaction of  people, goods, and ideas between and within any of the four  continents surrounding the Atlantic basin between the time of the   first Atlantic contacts in the 1400s and the present day. Situated  primarily in the fields of both social and cultural history, its  approaches are problem-oriented in scope, and highlighted by
comparative and transnational frameworks.

This conference seeks to explore and further establish shared  terminology, methodologies, and defining parameters as they pertain  to the field of transatlantic history.  It also seeks to serve as an  interdisciplinary and intercontinental meeting place where such ideas  can converge into a common conversation.

We invite paper and panel submissions that are historical,  geographical, anthropological, literary, sociological, and  cartographic in nature that fall within the scope of transatlantic  studies from both graduate students and young scholars.  We will  accept submissions for papers written in English, French, Spanish,  and German.

Selected participants’ papers will be considered for publication in  Traversea, the peer-reviewed, online, open-access journal in  transatlantic history operated by doctoral students as a joint  project between THSO and the doctoral program in transatlantic  history at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Topics may include but are not limited to the following:

New World encounters
Atlantic empires
Transatlantic networks
Making of nation-states
Transnational spaces
Transatlantic migration
Diaspora studies
Collective memory
Identity construction
Transatlantic cuisine and consumption
Intercultural transfer and transfer studies
Transnational families
Teaching transnational history

Submission of individual paper abstracts should be approximately  three hundred words in length and should be accompanied by an  abbreviated, maximum one-page, curriculum vita.  Panel proposals (3-4  people) should include titles and abstracts of panel as a whole as  well as each individual paper.  Deadline for submission is April 1,  2015.  We will notify authors of accepted papers by April 15, 2015.

Financial assistance may be available to eligible international  presenters.

The Conference Organizing Committee is composed of Christopher  Malmberg, Jacob Jones, Lydia Towns, and Cory Wells. Please direct  submissions and questions to Christopher Malmberg  christopher.malmberg@mavs.uta.edu
