Race and Racism: Challenges for History Teaching and Research

The Rivers School – Weston, MA - April 2, 2016

The New England Regional World History Association (NERWHA) invites proposals for panels, individual papers, workshops, and roundtables related to the theme of “Race and Racism: Challenges for History Teaching and Research.”  Proposals can be interdisciplinary, research-based, or have a pedagogical framework across the broad spectrum of historical studies from Area Studies, United States, and World History. Preference will be given to submissions based on the symposium’s theme, but the Program Committee welcomes all proposals that focus on any aspect of prejudice, intolerance, and oppression framed by racist and/or ethnocentric attitudes or ideologies.

We invite participation and attendance from the entire academic community with the goal of fostering connections for sharing scholarship and pedagogical practices across the spectrum of public and private education, (K-16 and beyond), as well as independent scholarship and public history.

Proposals should consist of a brief abstract (maximum 300 words) and a one-page CV for each participant.

Full details regarding the symposium, registration materials, accommodations, directions to The Rivers School in Weston, MA, and a map of the area will be available at the NERWHA website at <> in early Spring. Submit proposals as a Word document to Prof. Alfred J. Andrea  no later than 1 February  2016. Thank you.
