      Subject: CFP: Southern Industrialization Project Conference

      The Southern Industrialization Project (SIP) invites scholarly paper and
      session proposals for a conference at Kennesaw State University
      (suburban Atlanta), June 12-13, 2008. The conference's theme is "A
      Great Community of Labor and Production: The Synthesis of Southern
      Industrialization from the Antebellum Period to the 21st Century and
      Beyond."

      The keynote speaker for the conference is Stanley L. Engerman, the John
      H. Munro Professor of Economics and Professor of History at the
      University of Rochester. He is coauthor, with Robert William Fogel, of
      Time on the Cross, winner of the Bancroft Prize in 1974. He is also
      coauthor, with Lance E. Davis, of Naval Blockades in Peace and War: An
      Economic History since 1750 and has written or coedited numerous works
      on slavery and American and British history.
      SIP is interested in receiving proposals on topics from all periods of
      Southern history including the more recent technologically advanced
      industries of the 21st century.

      Papers may address the following or related topics:

      1) Case studies that reflect a new synthesis of labor and
      industrialization in Southern economic history.

      2) The impact of industrialization on rural-urban dynamics in the
      Southern United States.

      3) The incorporation of new historiography into general descriptions of
      southern history.

      4) The interpretation of Southern industrialization in a public history
      environment.

      5) In-migration and out-migration as a result of industrialization.

      6) The role of the military-industrial complex in the Southern economic
      development

      7) Branch plants, such as in automobile manufacturing, in the American
      South.

      8) The role of state or local governmental agencies, or of
      non-governmental organizations, in attracting and keeping Southern
      industries.

      9) Studies of new forms of industrialization for the South.

      10) The role of the transportation industry in changing the spatial
      patterns of the region.

      11) The role of Southern industrial entrepreneurship in shaping the
      South's economy.

      Organized in 1996, the Southern Industrial History Project (SIP) seeks
      to foster a greater understanding of the history and culture of
      industrialization in the American South. SIP operates the
      H-Southern-Industry discussion list on H-Net, with more than 200
      academic and public historians with research interests that encompass
      many industries, eras, and geographic locations. SIP also sponsors a
      book series, "New Currents in the History of Southern Economy and
      Society," published by the University of Missouri Press. While we meet
      at the SHA as an affiliated organization each year to hear scholarly
      papers and to propose methods for promoting research in Southern
      industrial history, we also occasionally sponsor a stand alone
      conference such as this one.

      To apply, please send a single page CV and single page paper abstract to

      Submission Deadline is March 17, 2008
