Call for Papers
The forty-third annual Western Society for French History conference will be in Chicago, Illinois, from November 5-7, 2015, at the Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile. This hotel is located a block off of North Michigan Avenue and two blocks from Lake Michigan, in the exciting heart of the city. To recognize the internal and external economic, cultural, political, and social engagements that characterize a global France, the conference theme is “Exchanges.” Broadly conceived, “Exchanges” involve gendered, religious, geographical, raced, intellectual, and class-based interactions.
While we encourage panels that address the theme of “exchanges,” we also welcome sessions focusing on other topics of interest to our scholarly community, from the medieval to the contemporary, both within and beyond the Hexagon. The WSFH encourages interdisciplinary scholarship and the participation of advanced graduate students. We urge individuals to organize complete panels composed of (preferably) three papers, a chair, and a commentator. The Program Committee can help organizers identify chairs and commentators.
