Fort Ticonderoga is seeking proposals for the Nineteenth Annual Seminar on the American Revolution to be held Friday-Sunday, September 22nd through 24th, 2023.
The Fort Ticonderoga Museum seeks proposals for new research on the critical period of the 18th century from a variety of perspectives and participants. Established scholars, graduate students, and others are encouraged to submit abstracts of papers broadly addressing the origins, conduct, or repercussions of the War for American Independence.
Fort Ticonderoga is especially interested in topics and approaches that engage the international nature of the conflict, representing the variety of peoples and places involved.
Organizers welcome interdisciplinary backgrounds and approaches covering the period from the 1760s to the 1780s. Papers may include or engage:
- Material Culture
- Biographical Analysis
- Social and Cultural Histories
- Global Theatres of War
- Archaeological Studies
- Indigenous Perspectives
Sessions are 30 minutes in length followed by 10 minutes for audience questions. Fort Ticonderoga may provide speakers with partial travel reimbursement. Submit a 300-word abstract and CV by email by October 31st, 2022, to Richard M. Strum, Director of Academic Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
