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.
The Ohio Academy of History is planning on publishing an on-line proceedings of select conference papers. These can be found here: http://www.ohioacademyofhistory.org/proceedings/ We welcome submissions from faculty and graduate students.
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.
The Spring conference will be held 22-23 March, 2019 at Miami University, Middletown. We are 45 minutes from the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force and the Dayton Aviation Heritage sites, as well as near the Voice of America Museum.

a title and 150-word abstract of each paper
a short biography, resume, or curriculum vita (one page) of each participant
telephone numbers and e-mail and mailing addresses
Those interested in chairing or commenting on papers should contact the committee chair with their areas of expertise.
