May 16-18, 2025

2025 marks the 250th anniversary of the year when war broke out once again across North America, eventually evolving into the American War of Independence. Twenty Years earlier another conflict had begun, also beginning in America that led directly to the war for American independence. The global Seven Years’ War reshaped political geographies, military practice, and alliances from Massachusetts to Manila. To explore the events of that conflict, and their repercussions including the later American Revolution, Fort Ticonderoga seeks proposals for papers broadly addressing the period the Seven Years’ War for its Twenty-Ninth Annual War College of the Seven Years’ War to be held May 16-18, 2025.

We seek new research and perspectives of one of the most important military and political events of its era, covering a diverse range of topics and perspectives from across the global Seven Years’ War. We welcome paper proposals from established scholars in addition to graduate students, museum professionals, and others that relate to the origins, conduct, and legacy of the Seven Years’ War. We are especially interested in topics and approaches that engage the international quality of the conflict as well as representing the variety of peoples and places involved.

We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and perspectives covering the period from at least the 1740s to the 1760s. Papers may include or engage:

  • Material Culture
  • Biographical Analysis
  • Campaign Histories
  • Archaeological Investigations
  • Cultural, Social, and Political Ramifications
  • Indigenous Populations

Sessions are 30 minutes in length followed by 10 minutes for audience questions. Fort Ticonderoga may provide speakers with partial travel reimbursement. Please submit a 300 word abstract and CV by email by July 31, 2024 to Richard M. Strum, Director of Academic Programs: [email protected]
