Chelsea Gibson's picture

 

SHGAPE is calling for panel proposals for the Organization of American Historians (OAH) Meeting and the American Historical Association (AHA) Meeting for SHGAPE sponsorship or co-sponsorship.  Sponsorship can direct traffic to your panel; or, as you’ll see below, for the OAH, SHGAPE can sponsor panels that have not been accepted by the selection committee. 

 

For the Organization of American Historians (OAH) Hybrid Conference to be held in Boston and online, March 31-April 3, 2022:

The OAH is accepting panel proposals through February 17, 2021. See: https://www.oah.org/meetings-events/meetings-events/call-for-proposals/

In addition to co-sponsoring panels accepted through the regular OAH application process, SHGAPE sponsors its own panels independently of the OAH selection committee.  To apply for SHGAPE co-sponsorship, you should submit your application through the OAH portal and also email a copy (in one .pdf file) to SHGAPE program committee chair Wendy Gamber, wgamber@indiana.edu

This will also place your application into consideration for exclusive SHGAPE sponsorship.  Your application should include the same information requested by the OAH program committee:  

- A complete mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, and affiliation for each participant, with the session organizer (contact person) clearly identified
- A title and abstract of no more than 500 words for the session as a whole. Please identify the proposal type (paper session, panel discussion, roundtable, state of the field, etc.)
- A title and prospectus of no more than 250 words for each paper presentation (this only applies to paper sessions, not to panel, roundtable, or state of the field proposals)
- A biography of no more than 500 words for each participant

The SHGAPE application deadline is March 1, 2021.
