I'm posting this CFP reminder again, but this time with a PDF attached. Hopefully the PDF opens without any problem. There are many possibilities with this new H-World format, one of them being file attachments, so it's time to try it out.

CALL FOR PRESENTERS
"Industrialization and World History" Hosted by The New England Regional World History Association (NERHWHA), Middlesex Community College and University of Massachusetts Lowell -- 25 October 2014
Please submit proposals as a Word document to NERWHAProg@gmail.com
Deadline: August 1, 2014
NERWHA invites proposals for panels, individual papers, and roundtables related to the theme of “Industrialization and World History.” Proposals can be interdisciplinary, research-based, or have a pedagogical framework. Preference will be given to submissions based on the symposium’s theme, but we also welcome submissions on all aspects of world history scholarship and pedagogy.
Submissions relating to the theme could include, but are not limited to, any of the following consequences of industrial development in any era of the human past: impact on maritime cultures, urbanization and social change, environmental challenges, social-economic stratification and daily life, migration and challenges to identity and culture, leisure time and social change, new paradigms for regulations and power relationships, imperialism and responses to colonialism; modern ideologies, labor and political responses, and challenges to Eurocentric models of development. NERWHA invites participation and attendance from the entire academic community and wishes to foster connections and build a network for sharing scholarship and best pedagogical practices across the spectrum of public and private education: K-12, higher education, independent scholarship, and public history.
Proposals should consist of a brief abstract (maximum 250 words), a one-page CV for each participant, and indicate any A/V needs. The Program Committee urges presenters to prepare their presentations with an eye toward engagement and discussion.
Full details regarding the symposium, registration materials, accommodations, directions to Lowell, MA, and a map of the area will be available at the NERWHA website at <nerwha.org> in the late summer or early fall.
