Mystic Seaport Museum, Inc. seeks paper or presentation proposals for the second national conference entitled: “RACE, ETHNICITY AND POWER IN MARITIME AMERICA, 2000 - Maritime Communities of the Atlantic World and the Pacific Rim:A Multidisciplinary Discussion”
The conference will be held at Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut September 14 - 17, 2000. It will engage a wide community of scholars, teachers, students, museum professionals, and the general public in a broad, cross disciplinary conversation about issues of race and ethnicity in the American maritime past. Scholars in American history and literature, the social sciences, urban, Native American, African American, and Latin American studies, and those who teach at all levels are encouraged to submit proposals. Sessions will be organized to foster a dialogue among conference participants about the state of scholarship, new research, and public access to the issues of race and ethnicity through institutional programing and our schools. Proposals are welcome from scholars, museum professionals, public historians, and the teachers of America’s youth.
Please mail, Email or fax a 250-word abstract of the proposed paper or presentation and c.v.(s) before April 1, 2000 to Glenn S. Gordinier at address or email shown below.
