CFP: Climate Change and Policy

Last month, I issued a CFP (see original below) for a special issue of the Marine Corps University Journal, focusing on climate change and policy. We have accepted several proposals for papers from well-established, published authors, but we are still looking for a few articles covering different aspects of the issue. Specifically, I am very interested in acquiring a political science perspective on climate change denial and partisan politics, a scientific perspective on realistic policy changes, and economic perspective (domestic or foreign).

Panel Search: Policy History Conference Panel on Bilingualism and Urban Politics

I am looking to put together a panel on bilingualism and urban politics in American history for the 2016 Policy History Conference.  My own work focuses on the Cuban community in Miami and I plan to present on the politics surrounding the 1973 bilingual ordinance in Dade County.  I would like to gather two or three papers on bilingualism in the United States.  Ideally this panel would seek to go beyond just English-Spanish bilingualism, but I am open to alter the panel as needed.

Looking Toward H-Net's Future

Dear H-Net Readers and Subscribers:

Over ten years ago, the H-Net Council passed a Strategic Plan for H-Net that envisioned what became the Commons.  H-Net would “implement an enterprise-wide content management system that encourages information sharing in a protected networked environment monitored by field experts” and “Plan for migration of content delivery technologies to web-based formats for editing, publication, and service.”

Seeking Panel for Policy History Conference 2016

Dear Fellow Historians, I am a newly minted PhD currently writing a paper for the Journal of Policy History Conference 2016 in Nashville on the influence of Adlai Stevenson 's foreign policy ideas and advocacy on the 1960s. This paper will also show the importance of the 1956 election. The paper will fit the following panels:

  • Foreign policy formation in the 1950s and 1960s

  • Second look at landslide elections

  • party politics in election years

  • modern Democratic party politics

  • modern American liberalism
