The Georgia Association of Historians invites proposals from professional historians and current graduate students of history for its 2019 Conference in Columbus, GA. The GAH welcomes proposals from all areas and subfields of history, including African, North American, Asian, European, and Latin American history, global history, public history, historic preservation, and regional studies, as well as proposals focused on resource or archival management and historical pedagogy.
Session proposals should be 500 words and include a session title and a title and description of each paper in the session. In addition, please include the names and full contact information of each participant, as well as a one-page c.v. Traditional paper sessions should include a commentator and/or chair for the session with full contact information. If a projector and screen are needed, please list them in the proposal. If a proposed session is accepted without a chair/commentator, one will be assigned by the program committee. Send electronic proposals in Microsoft Word format to Program Chair Glenn Robins at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Save the entire panel proposal (include individual abstracts, panel description, contact information, and one-page c.v. for each participant including the chair and commentators) in one document labelled with the organizer’s last name listed as Lastname_Panel.docx.
Individual paper or poster proposals should be 200 words and include a full description of the proposed paper, along with full contact information and a one-page c.v. for the presenter. If a projector and screen are needed, please list them in the proposal. Send electronic proposals in Microsoft Word format to Program Chair Glenn Robins at: email@example.com. Save the paper proposal (including your contact information and one-page cv) with your last name as a single document listed as Lastname_Paper.docx.
Papers must be original works of scholarship. Due to time limitations, papers will be limited to 15-20 minutes. Roundtables should be structured to fit a ninety-minute time slot. (While presenters must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in hand at the time the proposal is submitted, undergraduates may submit posters.)
The deadline for proposal submission is November 2, 2018.
Notification of a proposal’s acceptance will occur in December 2018.
Accepted papers will be due to the discussants by January 11, 2019.
