This graduate student conference seeks to foster interdisciplinary discussion among scholars studying the American, European, and African continents as well as those engaged in global and transnational projects. Research incorporating new methods for researching the Atlantic with the aid of digital materials and methodologies is particularly welcome. The Atlantic Studies Workshop invites submissions of abstracts from all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

The two-day conference will begin with a keynote presentation on Friday, April 13 by Professor Caroline Winterer from the Department of History at Stanford University. Professor Winterer is currently working with the Mapping the Republic of Letters project at Stanford, where she is mapping the intellectual networks of both Benjamin Franklin and the Library Company of Philadelphia.

One-page abstracts, accompanied by a short CV, now accepted (via email to mstango@umich.edu) through March 5, 2012. Questions may be directed to the Atlantic Studies Workshop coordinators, Marie Stango (mstango@umich.edu) or Patrick Tonks (tonks@umich.edu).
