In the past few years, historians of the Atlantic World have increasingly turned their interest toward North and South Atlantic relations and connections between Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Pacific Worlds. Atlantic History has turned global – to some extent at least.
For the fifth 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 North and South Atlantic relations and comparisons and on Atlantic-Pacific connections.
Prospective student participants should send a CV and a summary (3-4 pages altogether) of their research projects to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 September 2016. Successful applicants will be notified by 31 October 2016.
