War, Demobilization and Memory: The Legacy of War in the Era of Atlantic Revolutions

Filed under: Uncategorized — John Maass @ 10:34 am

I just learned of a new conference coming in 2013: War, Demobilization and Memory: The Legacy of War in the Era of Atlantic Revolutions. 

It will be held at King’s College London on May 30 to June 1, 2013.

The aim of the conference is to examine the transition from war to peace at the end of the series of conflicts at the turn of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries: notably, the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, the Anglo-American War of 1812, and the wars of independence that shattered European rule in Haiti, and in the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking empires of the western hemisphere. Whilst distinctive, these conflicts were also inter-connected at multiple levels, and not least in their transformative impact on the wider Atlantic World. I will be giving a paper on The 1780s Reconstruction and Reconciliation Efforts in North Carolina, although I have not chosen a title yet for the talk.

Bunker Hill, 1775
