The 40th annual meeting of the French Colonial Historical Society – June 25th-28th 2014, Siem Reap, Cambodia – CALL FOR PAPERS

FCHS

 

The 40th annual meeting of the French Colonial Historical Society (FCHS) will take place between the 25thand the 28th of June 2014, in Siem Reap, known worldwide as the gateway for the Angkor temples region. The event will be hosted by the Center for Khmer Studies and Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia- Siem Reap campus.

This year’s theme will be France and the Asia-Pacific region, but as usual, proposals on all aspects of overseas France will be considered. The Society encourages students, scholars, and educators, from all disciplines to submit proposals.

Individual paper proposals must include a 100-200 word summary with the title of the paper, name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and phone numbers, and a brief curriculum vitae, all integrated into a single file, preferably in MS-Word.

Proposals for entire sessions or panels must contain the same information on each participant, as well as contact information and a short C.V. for the moderator if you suggest one. (The program committee can help find moderators, if necessary.)

Please indicate in your proposal if you require audiovisual equipment for your presentation.

Individual or panel proposals should be sent to siemreapfchs2014@gmail.com, and will then be forwarded to the selection committee.  Individuals wishing to moderate a session should send a statement of interest, contact information, and a brief c.v. as well.

 

The deadline for proposal is the 15th of October, 2013.

 

The FCHS depends on membership dues. All conference participants must be or become members at the time of acceptance (January 2014). Unfortunately, with two exceptions the FCHS does not have funds to subsidize scholars’ participation at the meeting. Graduate students who will be presenting a paper at the Siem Reap meeting are invited to apply for the William Shorrock Travel Award at the time they submit their paper proposals. Application instructions can be found here. The Society is also waiving registration fees for a limited number of Cambodian scholars, students and faculty designated in advance by our hosts.
