Indiana Association of Historians 20th Annual Meeting
New Harmony, Indiana
March 3-4, 2000
Conference Theme: Dreams and Visions in History: The Past and The Future
The Indiana Association of Historians invites paper and panel proposals for its annual meeting to be held in New Harmony, Indiana. Paul Boyer, of the University of Wisconsin, will be the keynote speaker. Our theme "Dreams and Visions in History: The Past and The Future" takes its inspiration from both the new millennium and the original visionaries who settled New Harmony. While we will consider papers and sessions on other topics, we are particularly interested in proposals that examine how people of the past have articulated their dreams and visions of the future, or how they have interpreted their past and contemporary experiences as contributing toward particular visions of the future.
Historians of all chronological periods and geographical areas are
encouraged to submit proposals. Proposals need not be confined to U.S. and Indiana history. Both conventional and non-mainstream topics are welcomed, including comparative (cultural, national, chronological) topics. Participants may define "dreams" and "visions" narrowly or broadly in their subject area, including but not limited to: labor, community, millennialism, African American or Native American history, and gender studies.
We welcome proposals from both established professors and junior scholars. Participants need not be at colleges and universities; we welcome elementary and secondary school teachers, and public historians. We also welcome presentations on computer technology and history, and the teaching of history at all levels.
Papers (10 pages-2,500 words) and sessions (2 or 3 papers and 1 or 2
commentators) may be based upon original research, synthesis of scholarship, or participant experience.
PROPOSALS ARE DUE BY SEPTEMBER 30, 1999, and should consist of a one-page project description for each presentation plus a resume. Please send all proposals and materials to: Nancy L. Rhoden, History Department, University of Southern Indiana, Evansville, IN 47712. Tele: (812) 465-1202. Fax: (812)465-7152. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
