The University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Davidson College will co-host the 67th Annual Meeting of the Society for French Historical Studies.

The theme of this year’s conference, “Identity, Inclusion, and Exclusion in the Francophone World,” builds upon the past year’s intensification of conversations and initiatives around equity and inclusion in French history. In the face of persistent racist violence and the resulting global movement for Black lives, the Society is, in the words of its statement from January 2021, “resolute in fostering the teaching and study of race and racism, slavery and its afterlives, forms and legacies of colonialism, histories of law enforcement practices and criminal justice, violent insurgency and demagoguery, as well as processes that sustain free and fair elections, peaceful transitions of power, and democracy in the Francophone world and beyond.” We are eager for proposals related to the history of the Francophone world reflecting upon this theme, broadly conceived, as well as proposals attending to the role the Society, academic conferences, and the field of French history have played in perpetuating structures of exclusion and can play in dismantling those structures.

Participants must be members of the Society for French Historical Studies in good standing at the time of the conference and must pay conference fees via the registration link above. Membership dues should be paid directly to Duke University Press. Sessions will be held at the conference hotel, the Charlotte Marriott City Center (100 West Trade Street, Charlotte, NC, 28202) in Uptown Charlotte. The SFHS has secured a special conference room rate of $189 per night; a limited number of rooms will be available to graduate students at a rate of $142 per night.
