CFP: Creating, Displaying, and Revising American Identity

The Department of History at West Chester University invites proposals for Creating, Displaying, and Revising American Identity, the 2nd Annual West Chester University One-Day History Conference on Thursday, October 23, 2014.

This year’s theme has been inspired by the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key’s “Star-Spangled Banner” and the 50th anniversary of the National Museum of American History. Both the anthem and the museum’s exhibits and collections represent efforts to define—sometimes controversially—the meaning of  “American.”
