The byline reflects the original authorship.Type: Call for PapersDate: December 15, 2015Location: United KingdomSubject Fields: American History / Studies, Immigration & Migration History / StudiesAmericans Overseas: The United States in the World Since 186515-16 April 2016, Rothermere American Institute, OxfordAlthough woven into the fabric of the United States’ global interactions, the American diaspora is an understudied phenomena. US merchants, professional men and women, diplomats, authors, expatriates and overseas travellers were all significant elements of that diaspora. Building on scholarship examining the United States’ global connections, this conference will explore a cross-section of these offshore American communities. It seeks to uncover the diverse array of transnational American spaces overseas including, but not limited to military bases; consulates; expatriate social clubs; and business premises. These communities present opportunities to address such themes as the relationship between American migration and the expansion of US commerce, to the spread of U.S. imperialism, and to conceptions of “Americanisation” across the globe. It will also interrogate the processes through which American communities overseas were integrated into their host societies and how that reception was understood. Finally, it will examine offshore American communities as foci of global interconnection and as barometers of the changing relationship between the United States and the world as it navigated both globalisation and its own transformation.The conference will be held at the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford on 15-16 April 2016. Paper proposals on specific American communities overseas are welcome, but all proposals should seek to address the broad themes of the conference. Proposals should consist of a brief paper description (no more than one page) and a brief CV.
