      Final Call for Papers

      The Allen Morris Conference Committee and the Florida State University
      History Department are proud to announce the second biennial Allen
      Morris Conference on the History of Florida and the
      Atlantic World, to be held at the Florida State University's Turnbull
      Conference Center, Tallahassee, Florida, February 12, 2002.

      The conference theme is "Immigration, Migration, and Diaspora in Florida
      and the Atlantic World." The keynote speaker will be Dr. Louis A. PĂ©rez,
      the J. Carlyle Sitterson Professor of History at the University of North
      Carolina at Chapel Hill, who will discuss Cuban immigration to
      Florida.

      The Program Committee invites proposals that focus on issues specific to
      Florida, or that place Florida in a greater Atlantic context.
      Recognizing that Florida historically included territory as far
      west as the Mississippi River and as far north as English settlements in
      the Carolinas, we seek to include colonialera papers that cover the
      Spanish Borderlands, but also those that identify Florida
      as part of the larger Atlantic world. Topics such as the slave trade
      could be expanded to situate Florida in its Caribbean and colonial
      Spanish background. Other potential topics might include Native American
      and indigenous diaspora or investigations of nontraditional ethnic
      migrations. In the modern era, papers could address a variety of topics
      that include Florida in their analysis, such as "snowbird" migration,
      migrant labor in the winter vegetable industry, tourism, and Latin
      American immigration.

      The Program Committee welcomes proposals for individual papers or
      complete panels. Interested applicants should submit a proposal of no
      more than 300 words for each paper and a brief curriculum vitae for each
      participant. Individuals interested in serving as a chair or commentator
      should forward a vita as well. Proposals must be received no later than
      May 1, 2001.

      Papers delivered at the Conference will be eligible for inclusion in a
      planned anthology on the history of Florida and the Atlantic World.

      Paper proposals and inquiries should be addressed to:
