Please consider participation in Macrohistorical Dynamics (MHD) panels of the 42nd annual meeting of the Social Science History Association, November 2-5, 2017 in Montréal. For more information on the meeting as well as the call for proposals, please refer to the SSHA website at Here is the SSHA call for proposals (link).

The deadline for paper and/or panel submissions isMarch 3, 2017.

In recognition of Canada’s policy of official bilingualism,SSHAwill accept paper presentations in either English or French for our meeting in Montreal. Sessions may be monolingual English, monolingual French, or bilingual English/French. Session organizers must clearly indicate which language(s) will be spoken at their session, and paper submitters must indicate if their paper will be delivered in French. All paper abstracts must be submitted with an English version, regardless of the language in which the paper will be presented. Please contact the Program Committee co-chair Barry Eidlin ([email protected])with any questions regarding conference language policies.
The thematic topic of the annual meeting is “Changing Social Connections in Time and Space” – a theme that works very well with the research interests of many of the scholars involved in the Macrohistorical Dynamics network.

Macrohistorical Dynamics (MHD) is an interdisciplinary social science research field that focuses on problems of large-scale, comparative historical inquiry. Contributors to the field have brought perspective on a wide variety of problem areas, including macro- and historical sociology; comparative histories; world history; world-system analysis; comparative study of civilizations; philosophy of history; and studies of long-term socio-ecological, technological, demographic, cultural, and political trends and transformations. The Macrohistorical Dynamics network brings a rigorous perspective to bear on questions having to do with “large” history.

    The list of MHD panel themes for 2017 is open, and we encourage you to submit proposals for panel themes or individual paper topics.The MHD network will be able to host at least six panels in 2017 and will also be able to place additional papers through co-sponsorship with other networks (for example, with History/Methods, Politics, Culture, State-Society, Historical Geography, etc.).SSHA requests that submissions be made by means of its web conference management system.Paper title, brief abstract, and contact information should be submitted on the site, where the general SSHA 2017 call for papers is also available. (If you haven’t used the system previously you will need to create an account, which is a very simple process.) The direct link for submissions is now open for submissions (link).

    NOTE: There is an SSHA rule concerning book sessions. For a book session to proceed, the author (or at least one of multiple authors) MUST be present. Proposals for book sessions should only be submitted if there is high confidence that the author will be able to travel to Baltimore November 17-20, 2016.

    SSHA has set up a mechanism for networks to share papers, so even if you have a solo paper, send the idea along. It is possible and useful to identify a paper not only by the MHD network, but also by some other co-sponsoring networks--for example, Theory/Methods, Historical Geography, Politics, Culture, Economics, etc. Co-sponsored panels and papers are encouraged by the SSHA Program Committee as a means of broadening the visibility of the various networks.Feel free to contact the co-chairs of the Macrohistorical Dynamics network for further information.Prof. Daniel LittleUniversity of Michigan-Dearborn[email protected]Prof. Peter PerdueDepartment of HistoryYale University[email protected]Prof. James LeeSchool of Humanities and Social ScienceHong Kong University of Science and Technology[email protected]
