Researching New York: A Conference on New York State History has extended their deadline for proposals to August 5th, 2018.
This annual conference brings together a broad community of historians, archivists, public historians, graduate students, museum curators, teachers, documentarians, and more to share their work on New York State history.
Conference organizers invite proposals from any time period and any methodological perspective on all aspects of New York State’ rich history. They seek submissions for workshops, roundtables, panels, and individual papers from scholars, public historians, educators, archivists, librarians, media makers, and others engaged in the study, teaching, and dissemination of New York State History. Work that addresses practical and theoretical issues surrounding the interpretation, preservation, commemoration, and public presentation of New York State history is encouraged.
There is no specific theme this year. Complete panels, workshops, media presentations, or full sessions are preferred; partial panels and individual submissions will be considered whenever possible. For panel, roundtable, or workshop proposals, submit a one-page summary of your session, including a brief abstract, and one-page curriculum vita for each panel participant. Individual submissions should include a one-page abstract and one-page vita. For vitas greater than one page, only the first page will be reviewed.
Submissions must include name, address, and e-mail address. All proposals should include any anticipated audiovisual needs and note any possible time constraints. When possible, scheduling accommodations will be made, but cannot be guaranteed. Submit your proposal as an attachment, in a single document, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organizers are also seeking panel commentators. Indicate your interest by contacting email@example.com, noting your area of expertise, along with a one-page vita.
Researching New York is sponsored by the University at Albany Department of History & History Graduate Student Assn., University at Albany M.E. Grenander Special Collections & Archives, and the New York State Archives Partnership Trust with additional support from the New York State Museum.
