Multiple Atlantic Worlds summer school

Multiple Atlantic worlds emerged with research on the Spanish and Portuguese empires as well as with studies on African slavery and the Black Atlantic. While from an imperial history perspective, scholars have also treated of English/British, French, Dutch and Swedish Atlantic worlds, research on migrations, of free and unfree peoples, on religious communities, pirates, interlopers, maroons, American Indians and many other groups (and individuals) have made clear that the construction of Atlantic worlds was a rather multifaceted phenomenon. Next to the Black Atlantic, scholars have researched Green, Red, Catholic, Protestant and Sephardi Jewish Atlantic worlds. For most of these Atlantics, it is obvious that they were neither homogenous nor self-contained. Many had multiple transregional dimensions, some even on a global scale.
For the sixth Summer Academy of Atlantic History we invite applications from PhD students working on the history of the Atlantic World between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries. While all projects pertaining to Atlantic History will be considered, we are particularly interested in applications on the multiple (interconnected) Atlantic worlds.

The sixth Summer Academy will be hosted by Prof Susanne Lachenicht, Universitaet Bayreuth, and will take place on Lake Starnberg, Upper Bavaria, Germany.

As well as providing the selected students with an opportunity to present papers and engage in discussion with tutors and their fellow students on their research, the Summer Academy will also host keynote speakers who will address broad themes appertaining to Atlantic History.
Prospective student participants should send a CV and a summary (3-4 pages altogether) of their research projects to by 31 July 2018. Successful applicants will be notified by 30 September 2018.
