This two-day conference at the University of Leicester will explore comparative and transnational analyses of liberalism across the Americas from 1780 to 1930. The conference aims to focus attention on the contested ways in which liberal ideas and practices were accepted, adapted, translated, and rejected in different local, regional, national, and international contexts. The development of regional, “popular”, and gendered visions of liberalism in different parts of North America, Latin America and the Caribbean will be analysed alongside papers that deal with global developments in the history of liberalism. Supporting this aim, the conference will also highlight the opportunities for comparative and transnational research provided by the Liberalism in the Americas Digital Library (LADL), based at the Institute for the Study of the Americas, which contains documents related to the history of liberalism in Mexico, Peru and Argentina, c. 1780-1930.

Our Keynote Speakers, Dr Nicholas Guyatt (University of York) and Dr Gabriel Paquette (Johns Hopkins University) will also represent the hemispheric interests of the conference, by exploring themes in the history of liberalism in North America and South America respectively.
