Pennsylvania Historical Association - Call for Papers 2021

“Justice and Rights in the Mid-Atlantic”

In response to recent public protests of police violence and new calls to eradicate systemic racism, the Pennsylvania Historical Association has chosen “Justice and Rights in the Mid-Atlantic” as its 2021 conference theme. The Program Committee is especially interested in presentations that address topics related to justice and rights, including economic, political, cultural, social, and religious history. Scholars in fields other than history (such as criminology, public policy, and sociology) are encouraged to submit proposals.

The committee also welcomes proposals on all aspects of Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic History including panels on traditional scholarship as well as ones on pedagogy, public history, or material culture. Formats include panels, roundtable discussions, lightning rounds, and student posters. Full session proposals are preferred, but individual papers will be considered. All are welcome to apply. PHA membership is required to participate  at the 2021 annual meeting. The conference will be held October 14, 15, and 16, 2021, virtually via Zoom webinars.

Proposals must be submitted electronically by March 15, 2021 to
