Historians make choices about the scale of their inquiry. They set parameters for their projects – temporal, geographical, social, archival – which shape their research strategies, their potential audiences, and their interpretations and arguments. Do you write history on a grand or intimate scale? Or both? We welcome paper and panel proposals on any geographical area, time period, or field of history, especially those relating to the theme of scale.
