Bedford Room, G37, Ground Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

The Independence of Peru was a global event. A key battleground of the 'Age of Revolutions' and 'the First Wave of Decolonization,' Peru's independence was intimately connected to events and trends sweeping across the South American continent, the Atlantic World, and the globe. In this London symposium, leading scholars will present and debate the latest research on this global event of lasting significance.

We are now seeking papers that engage the following approaches:

- Connected histories of independence
- Conceptual and intellectual histories of independence
- Economic histories of independence
- New political histories of independence
- Atlantic and global histories of independence and decolonisation
- Historical anthropologies of independence
- Cultural histories of the symbols and materiality of independence
- Histories of the historiography of independence
- Histories of knowledge and independence
- Histories of centennial and bicentennial commemorations
