The Atlantic World Workshop at NYU, established in 1997, is a forum for the exchange
of ideas among scholars of the humanities and social sciences with
interests in the history of the Atlantic world. The workshop sponsors
regular sessions during the academic year to discuss works in progress by
both junior and senior researchers. Papers are circulated in advance,
and all sessions are open to both members of the Atlantic world history
program of the NYU History Department and the wider scholarly
history is a growing field that encompasses research on trends spanning
Africa, the Americas, and Europe; comparative analysis of Atlantic
historical processes; and histories of any of the subregions of the
Atlantic world. Workshop participants have addressed such themes as
Atlantic diasporas, slavery, cross-regional political and religious
movements, literature and language, gender, and Atlantic trade, with an
emphasis on the period between 1500 and 1900. The workshop is open to
discussion of all relevant topics and theoretical perspectives within the
field and especially encourages debate about new approaches and
