The Russian invasion of Ukraine has brought war to Continental Europe in a form not seen in decades. The outbreak of a continental war, the invasion of a neighboring territory, and even the players in today’s unfolding saga remind us of many historical examples, including the Seven Years’ War. During this global conflict unprovoked invasion and a drawn out war in Europe featured as some of the many aspects of this cataclysmic struggle. Whether from a comparative lens, or more specifically plumbing the nuances of the specific period 1754-1763, Fort Ticonderoga seeks proposals for papers broadly addressing the period the Seven Years’ War for its Twenty-Seventh Annual War College of the Seven Years’ War to be held May 19-21, 2023.
They seek new research and perspectives of one of the most important military and political events of its era, covering a diverse range of topics and perspectives from across the global Seven Years’ War. We welcome paper proposals from established scholars in addition to graduate students, museum professionals, and others that relate to the origins, conduct, and repercussions of the Seven Years’ War. They are especially interested in topics and approaches that engage the international quality of the conflict as well as representing the variety of peoples and places involved.
They welcome interdisciplinary approaches and perspectives covering the period from the 1740s to the 1760s. Papers may include or engage:
- Material Culture
- Biographical Analysis
- Campaign Histories
- Archaeological Investigations
- Cultural, Social, and Political Ramifications
- Indigenous Populations
Sessions are 30 minutes in length followed by 10 minutes for audience questions. Fort Ticonderoga may provide speakers with partial travel reimbursement.
