The 8th Biannual conference of the European Early American Studies Association will be organised at the University of Poitiers, France, December 10-12, 2020. The conference will focus on the related themes of“Colonisations, revolutions, and reinventions in early America and the Atlantic World 1600-1848.”
For the past twenty years, the study of Early America and the Atlantic has reinvigorated the fields of imperial and colonial topics by focusing on the circulations of goods and people. Much current research on early America and the Atlantic world examines concepts such as « empires », « commerce », « exchange », « trade. » At the same time, the political history of the revolutionary Atlantic is often overlooked as the approach of an older historiography.
