(En)gendering the Atlantic World

April 20-21st, 2018

The faculty and students of the Atlantic World Workshop at New York University are delighted to announce our upcoming conference, “(En)gendering the Atlantic World.” Please see our CFP for more information, including submission instructions. We will be accepting submissions until October 15, 2017.

The Atlantic World Workshop at New York University is pleased to announce that Todd Romero, Associate Professor of History at the University of Houston, will be giving the keynote address. He is the author of Making War and Minting Christians: Masculinity, Religion, and Colonialism in Early New England (2011). He is currently working on a biography of the Indian leader Metacom (King Philip) under contract with Oxford University Press and a monograph focusing on Indian children from New England to the Chesapeake, provisionally titled “Colonizing Childhood: Native American Children in British North America.” Both of these projects highlight the intersections of religion, colonialism, gender, childhood, violence, labor, and race in early America.

The conference will be held at the Glucksman Ireland House of NYU, located at 1 Washington Mews, New York, NY 10003. This conference is open to scholars of all ranks, as well as the public.
