Hi all:

I'm calling for papers/participants to put together a panel for the 2019 AHA meeting in Chicago (January 3-6).

Panelists with experience teaching outside of the academy seems to fit the AHA's continued emphasis on "career diversity for historians."

This year's conference theme is "Loyalities." Know though, that, "the Program Committee does not consider proposals' relation to the theme in evaluating them."

I, for one, am interested in learning from other secondary school teachers about strategies they use to maintain a research agenda along with high school teaching and coaching.

That means I'm looking for two to three other panelists to share their non-university teaching experiences.

My paper will adress working in interntional schools as I currently teach in Seoul, South Korea.

If interested, please email me an abstract/description (max 300 words) of your paper along with short bio/cv (max 250 words).

Please include your afilliation, location, and contact information (including Twitter handle if applicable).

I'll need these by February 6th in order to write a pithy panel title and submit the proposal before the deadline.

You'll hear from me if the news is good.
