Ohio Academy of History Annual Meeting

Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio

31 March -- 1 APRIL 2017

 

The Ohio Academy of History seeks papers in all fields of history for its annual regional conference.  Papers may deal with any area or time period, including World, Latin American, African, Asian, European, Oceanian, as well as American.  Proposals focusing on historiography, methodology, pedagogy, and public history are also welcome. 

 

Proposals may consist of individual papers, sessions on a common theme, or discussion panels. Panels might address topics like the following and we are open to other topics.  

  • The Centennial of President John F. Kennedy's birth
  • The Centennial of U.S. Entry into World War I
  • The Obama Administration
  • World-systems and Diversity: Time for deeper history on Mercosur, ASEAN or the African Union?
  • Technology and History

 

Paper sessions generally include three papers (20 minutes each) and a chair or commentator. In addition to traditional format sessions (scholarly papers with chair and commentator), the Ohio Academy welcomes non-traditional formats such as roundtables, discussion panels, or teaching-focused formats.  We do not at this time solicit or accept undergraduate papers.

 

Submit proposals no later than 15 December 2016 to either Program Committee
