New York has a long and rich history that, while stretching back to the Iroquoian tribes that inhabited and roamed its vast spaces several hundred years ago, is looking forward to understanding the cyberspace communities that today shatter older definitions of geographical boundaries. Soldiers and sweatshop workers, incarcerated felons and wealthy urbanites, teachers and parsons, Wall Street brokers and students, homeless vagabonds and politicians-all are part of the tapestry of New York. Join us as we explore the Empire State's variegated and significant past.
Sponsored by the Department of History, the New York Sate Archives and Archives Partnership Trust, and the History Graduate Student Organization, Researching New York provides a forum for the exploration of New York's rich history. It brings together researchers, archivists, librarians, public historians, museum curators, Web site creators, and documentarians-emphasizing the integral relationship between researchers and resources.
The 2nd Annual Researching New York Conference will be held at the University at Albany ~ SUNY on November 17, 2000. We welcome proposals for papers, panels, workshops, roundtables, and exhibits on any aspect of New York history.
Proposals are due by June 26, 2000. Presenters will be notified by August 1, 2000. Full panel proposals are encouraged, however, we will also consider partial panel and individual submissions. All submissions must include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Please submit a one page abstract for each proposal and a one-page curriculum vita for each presenter to either the e-mail address or mailing address listed below.
As it becomes available, the Conference Program, including details about workshops, speakers, and registration information will be posted at the Researching New York 2000 Web site linked below.
