2015 Conference on the American Revolution

Not sure how many of you get up Boston way, but I thought the following from the Massachusetts Historical Society might be of interest:

Boston MassacreMark your calendars for this conference, to be held 2 to 4 April, 2015, in recognition of the 250th anniversary of the passage of the Stamp Act. The program will be held at the MHS and is co-sponsored by the Society, Boston University, the David Library of the American Revolution, and Williams College. This conference aims to break out of the well-worn grooves of historical inquiry that have defined the study of the Revolution for the past fifty years. Colleagues are invited to submit proposals to present scholarly essays; in particular, the organizers are seeking papers that address issues of politics and ideology, the impact of military developments and military actions on society, and the course of Revolution in New England. They may reserve some slots for invited scholars. Aside from the keynote speaker, presenters will not deliver their papers aloud; papers under discussion will be available at the Society’s website to registered attendees approximately one month before the program. Submissions should include a one-page description of up to 500 words and a short c.v. with current contact information. Send proposals to Conrad Edick Wright, Director of Research at the MHS, or by email to by 21 February 2014.
