One opening for presenter on nuclear production in material and metaphor (ASEEES 2018)

Greetings,

Our panel is seeking 1 more paper presenter for our panel as part of ASEEES 2018 in Boston.

We are engaging with themes relating to the production of knowledge and memory of the nuclear industry as well as its radioactive by-products, the impact on the collective psyche, emotion, and imagination, as captured in Soviet science fiction, and conceptualizing nuclear “by-products” in terms of social-environmental inequalities.

Proposal for panel/roundtable/facilitated discussion at OHA Annual Meeting: Using adults' oral histories to understand their childhoods

For the OHA Annual Meeting in October 2018, I'd like to organize a panel of paper presentations, a roundtable, or a facilitated discussion on conducting and using oral histories of adults to understand their childhoods.  My own research focus is on children and youth during the Cold War; however, the proposed topic would be relevant for scholars in any historical area who use adults' oral histories to learn about their childhoods.

CfP (conference): "Encounters: Travel and Tourism in Historical Perspective," Department of History, Seton Hall University

For centuries, travel and tourism have served as venues through which individuals encounter, articulate, and grapple with notions of difference. Travelers and “armchair tourists” alike engage with the world and learn about distant places—even as the practices of tourism promote forms of knowledge that are often inaccurate and connections that are often more imagined than real. Providing windows to the social and cultural norms of the past, tourism tell us much about the mobility of peoples, ideas, and cultures, but also about global imbalances of power.
