As the summer comes to a close (sorry to be the bearer of sad news), a reminder on the Western History Association’s call for submissions for its 2015 meeting in Portland Oregon from October 21 through October 24.Submission deadline is September 1, 2014. The Association’s 55th Annual Conference, 2015’s theme will be Thresholds, Walls, and Bridges.
The Program Committee invites proposals that consider what has divided and connected the many peoples who have traversed, sojourned, and settled the North American West and what might yet link their histories.
From the WHA’s web site:
The Program Committee welcomes a range of formats: panels, roundtables, workshops, and innovative formats. We strongly encourage full session submissions and will consider single papers that can reasonably be matched with other panels or papers. When submitting an entire sessions or panel, the designated contact person should submit the proposal. Please include a brief abstract (250 words) that outlines the purpose of the session.
Each paper proposal, whether individual or in a session, should include a one-paragraph abstract; each presenter should submit a one-page c.v., with address, phone, and e-mail. Indicate any equipment needs. The committee assumes that all listed individuals have agreed to participate. Electronic submissions are required and should be sent, with supporting materials, as a single document (PDF) to firstname.lastname@example.org. THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS 1 SEPTEMBER 2014.
Enjoy these last weeks of summer, and hope to see you all in Newport Beach.
