We are seeking two to three additional panelists for a roundtable proposal for the Organization of American Historians Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. April 2-4, 2020. 

This roundtable will be composed of informal presentations regarding different strategies, challenges, and methods of teaching American history in contemporary classrooms or learning settings. Ideally, each presenter would explain their teaching context and focus for 5-7 minutes on a particular issue of choice (i.e. diversity, types of readings or textbooks, activities in the classroom, student engagement, etc.). Currently, the roundtable represents a regional state university and a small, very diverse liberal arts college so we are particularly interested in panelists from community colleges, research institutions, or other types of learning settings. Further, graduate students, tenure-track faculty, adjuncts, and lecturers are all welcome. 

The deadline for OAH submissions is February 1, 2019; We would like interested panelists to send a bio and short description of their proposed focus of discussion by January 15, 2019. Please send materials to both Nicole Greer Golda (ngreergolda@ferrum.edu) and Ashley Johnson Bavery (abavery@emich.edu).
