The 2014 Program Committee for the 54th Annual Conference of the Western History Association, to be held October 15-18, 2014 in Newport Beach, California is inviting proposals for complete panels or individual papers that consider the relationship between the West and the world.
The committee is interested highlighting scholarship that seeks to answer the question of what forces have connected the North American West with other peoples?
Hosted n the eastern shore of the Pacific Rim, the committee is reminded that the West isn’t always geographically west, yet we also find ourselves asking, “What makes it a particular place? What sets it apart as a unique region?”
THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS 1 SEPTEMBER 2013.
