2016 Annual Meeting

Call for Proposals

The Pennsylvania Historical Association invites proposals for its 2016 Annual Meeting to be hosted by Shippensburg University, Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, October 6-8, 2016. 

The conference theme will be “Technology, Business, and the Environment,” but the program committee welcomes proposals on all aspects of Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic history.  In addition to sessions focused on traditional scholarship, the program committee encourages panels that feature pedagogy, public history, or material culture.  Roundtable discussions that foster audience involvement are welcome as well.  Full session proposals are strongly preferred, but the committee will consider individual papers.  Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals.  The PHA also supports student research with a poster session showcasing work focused on all aspects of Mid-Atlantic history.

All program participants must be PHA members at the time of the annual meeting. 

Proposals must be submitted electronically by February 15, 2016 to:
