Proposals are sought for an edited collection on “Prophecy and Eschatology in the Trans-Atlantic World, 1500-1800”. While the collection has a number of authors committed to producing papers, we are still seeking submissions, particularly those focusing on:

*Prophecy and Eschatology in the Netherlands and Dutch trade networks.

*Prophecy and its relationship to debates on religious toleration.

*Prophecy and conceptions of providence in the trans-Atlantic world.

*Expansion of trade within an eschatological context.

*Eschatology and European/Native interactions in the New World.

Proposals of 250 words and a brief biography, should be submitted to Andrew.crome@manchester.ac.uk by February 20th. First drafts of papers (6,000-8,000 words) would be due December 2014, and final drafts by April 2015. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a topic not mentioned above, please get in touch to check that your topic has not already been covered.
