October 6-7, 2017

The University of North Georgia, Dahlonega, GA

The Southeast World History Association (SEWHA), a regional affiliate of the World History Association, invites submissions for its twenty-ninth conference, hosted at the University of North Georgia, 6-7 October 2017. The conference organizers welcome proposals that engage with the broad range of possible topics in world history, with a particular interest in submissions that touch upon the theme of “Periodization and Temporality in World History.”

How does the globalization of our historical horizon impact our thinking about the great transitions and transformations of the past? What are the challenges dealing with different – juxtaposed, entangled – temporalities when writing history that goes beyond the confines of the nation? How do we bring to life and incorporate the ways the people of the past thought about time and change? How should historians engage with historical models in contemporary debates, ranging from modernizing teleologies, specters of historical repetition, visions of post-human history, and attempts to grasp mankind as a geological actor?

Panel and individual paper proposals are welcome, including from allied disciplines. In addition to traditional paper proposals, we accept proposals for non-traditional formats such as roundtables, information sessions, and pedagogy-focused discussions. Proposals can come from academic and public historians, independent scholars, graduate students at all levels, and K-12 educators and should not exceed 250 words. The deadline for submission is June 1, 2017. Participants must be members of SEWHA at the time of the conference. Please include contact information and a short bio-sketch of the presenter. For panel proposals, please be sure to include a short panel abstract as well as abstract for individual papers. Submit proposals electronically to sungshin.kim@ung.edu
