Subject: OAH southern regional meeting
As you may have heard, the OAH will be holding a regional conference in the
South next summer, in Atlanta on 8-11 July 2004. I wanted to make sure that
you, as readers of H-South, were aware that the call for papers closes soon.
We are anticipating an exciting program and an attendance of approximately
500 historians, teachers, graduate students, public historians, and
exhibitors. OAH has simplified the proposal process by creating an online
submission process <http://www.oah.org/meetings/2004regional/propose.html>.
The deadline for online submissions for the meeting is 1 August 2003.
Call for Papers
2004 OAH Southern Regional Conference
"Practicing American History in the South"
In 2004 OAH, in conjunction with Georgia State University Department of
History and the Georgia Association of Historians, will host its second
regional conference. Its aim is to serve anew its members at community and
four-year colleges and high schools, and those employed in government,
museums, and the private sector as well as in major universities. The
conference also seeks to encourage persons who will soon serve in these
diverse capacities--graduate students--to get involved in professional
activities early in their careers.
The regional conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, on the campus of
Georgia State University, 8-11 July 2004. (See
http://www.oah.org/meetings/2004regional/) The meeting takes as its special
charge a desire to reach members and other historians and graduate students
who find it difficult to attend the national meeting held in the spring
each year. Atlanta is a convenient, central location in the Southeast and
the conference benefits from the relatively inexpensive lodging and
services offered by Georgia State University. Considerable attention will
be devoted to professional development and the practice of history both in
classrooms and in public settings in the South.
In keeping with recent OAH program practices, we encourage formats that
promote discussion and participation, for example, roundtables and debates
with up to five panelists. We also recommend that panelists discuss rather
than read their papers, in an effort to increase dialogue with the
audience. Although session proposals are preferred, we welcome individual
paper submissions. We also welcome volunteers to chair or comment at
sessions, as assigned by the Program Committee.
Session and Paper Proposals
Proposals for single papers and complete sessions should be submitted
online at http://www.oah.org/meetings/2004regional/propose.html
Deadline for proposals is 1 August 2003.
