Call for Papers (reminder):
"Identity and History"
Georgia Association of Historians
Annual Meeting, April 13-14, 2001
Nation, class, race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation,
culture, region, place--all these and more have served as raw material for
the construction of human identity. At the dawn of the 21st century, the
politics of identity is still very much with us throughout the world in a
variety of forms. Historians have always played key roles in both
explaining the origins and significance of identity and, at the same time,
in helping to create identity.
The Georgia Association of Historians invites proposals for papers
addressing any aspect of the theme of identity and history for its April
13-14, 2001, Annual Meeting at Augusta State University, Augusta, Georgia.
The GAH encourages submissions in all subfields of history. Each proposal
for an individual paper or a panel should include two copies of a one-page
synopsis and a brief c.v. for each participant. As always, the GAH meeting
is open to proposals on any historical topic, including teaching, but
special consideration will be given to panels and papers that address the
theme. Graduate and undergraduate students, whose papers may also be
eligible for submission to the contest sponsored by the GAH and the
National Archives-Southeast Region, are strongly encouraged to participate.
Send paper and panel proposals by December 15, 2000, to: Those interested in chairing or commenting on papers are also invited to submit a c.v. Inquiries may be made at email@example.com.
Appropriate to our theme, the keynote speaker on Friday evening, April 13,
will be James C. Cobb, Phinizy Spalding Professor of History at the
University of Georgia and past president of the Southern Historical
Association. Much of Cobb's work has focused on the regional identity of
the American South, including The Most Southern Place on Earth: The
Mississippi Delta and the Roots of Regional Identity (1992) and Redefining
Southern Culture (1999).
The conference hotel is the historic Partridge Inn (706-737-8888). A block
of rooms has been set aside for the meeting and it is not too soon to make
