Announcement: Upcoming World History Symposium “The Hispanic Americas in World History”

New England Regional World History Association (NERWHA) is hosting a one-day fall symposium on Saturday, 26 October 2013, starting at 8:45 a.m., at Memorial Lounge, Waterman Building, on the Campus Green, the University of Vermont, Burlington, Vermont. The symposium features a keynote address and four sessions. The day’s events will end at 5:00 p.m.

The keynote address by Felipe Fernández-Armesto, William P. Reynolds Professor of History, University of Notre Dame, is a special highlight. Anyone conversant with world history knows his rich contributions to the field; he has published thirty-three books and is well known as a stimulating (and entertaining) speaker. His address will focus on his current research and forthcoming book.

A program, a registration form, a downloadable flier, and other details (including a list of nearby hotels as well as links to maps and directions) are available at www.nerwhaorg. Lunch will be included in the registration fee of $25 for members, $45 for non-members, and $15 for matriculating students. Inquiries regarding the symposium may be e-mailed to Nicholas F. Russell, chairman of the Outreach Committee, at
