The Bureau of Reclamation's Advisory Committee for Symposium 2002, consisting of James Corbridge, University of Colorado Law School; Patricia Limerick, University of Colorado Center of the American West; Toni Rae Linenberger, Bureau of Reclamation history program; Donald Pisani, University of Oklahoma History Department; William Rowley, University of Nevada – Reno History Department; Joe Simonds, Bureau of Reclamation history program; and, Brit Storey (chair), Bureau of Reclamation history program (303) 445-2918, solicits proposals for papers on topics related to the history of the Bureau of Reclamation. This symposium will address issues related to Reclamation's one hundred year history.
This two-day history symposium will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in mid-June 2002. The symposium will follow a non-conventional format ,and while papers will not be read they will be discussed. Panels will discuss Reclamation history chronologically (to 1928; 1928-1944; 1944-1968; 1968-present) and topically (topics will be determined for each chronological period based on proposals accepted for inclusion in the symposium). Not all panelists need to prepare papers.
Reclamation will provide the selected participants with a small subvention to support attendance at the symposium and some research expenses. The subvention will likely be paid in two installments: the first upon submission of the paper; the second after attendance at the symposium and revision of the paper based on discussions at the symposium. Papers will be required by July 1, 2001, for distribution to participants in the symposium. Based on discussions at the symposium final revised papers will be due September 1, 2002, and will be published.
We especially invite faculty, students, and others doing research in Reclamation's history and topics related to Reclamation's history to submit proposals. Those interested may propose to participate in a panel(s), prepare a paper, or both. Submit a proposal of 1-2 pages detailing how you wish to participate (including the nature and intent of any proposed paper) and include a brief résumé.
Paper requirements include: use of the Journal of American History style guide; providing hard copy; providing a diskette in WordPerfect or Word; approximately 20-30 pages double spaced, 12 point Times Roman, 1-inch margins on all sides.
