Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World Program/ French Colonial Historical Society/Huguenot Society of South Carolina

Charleston, South Carolina, United States
12-14 May 2022

The 46th annual meeting of the French Colonial Historical Society (FCHS) will take place in Charleston, SC in conjunction with the  Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World Program (CLAW) and the Huguenot Society of South Carolina. Conference events will take place on the campus of the College of Charleston and conference associated activities will occur in historic downtown Charleston.
 

This year’s theme will be “Transatlantic Diasporas,” which invites participants to reflect on the diasporic networks that defined the French colonial world. These might include religious diasporas and networks such as the Huguenots; political dissident groups like the émigrés who fled the French Revolution; or planters who fled the Haitian Revolution; or diasporas of Africans or indigenous people who scattered around the French colonial world and interacted in various ways with colonial and imperial power structures. We are especially eager to receive proposals connected to Africa, the French Caribbean, and connections of these places to other colonies in the Americas. The Society encourages students, scholars, and educators from all disciplines to submit proposals. Papers may be delivered in English or French.
