Spring 2018

FEEGI Draft Conference Program Available

The Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction (FEEGI) will hold its twelfth biennial conference February 23-24, 2018 at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.

The draft program for FEEGI 2018 is available here.

“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). One of the hallmarks 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.”
