Organization of American Historians
Annual Meeting, Washington DC
April 11-14, 2002
I am seeking panelists for a session, broadly conceived, on Race, Nationalism, and Cold War Culture in America for the 2002 meeting of the Organization of American Historians. The meeting’s theme is "Overlapping Diasporas: Encounters and Conversions.
In general, I seek papers that explore the racialized discourse of Cold War culture and how it shaped Americans’ understanding of national identity, their responses to race and racial problems, and how this discourse affected American politics and political culture, especially in the 1960s and after. Essays could examine, for example, how the Cold War supported or thwarted community building and identity formation among racial or ethnic groups in America, how race was used to create or perpetuate an American national identity, or what impact the Cold War’s racialized discourse had on public policy and legislation.
Send proposals (that address the meeting’s theme) and a C.V. by December 11, 2000 TO: Rusty Monhollon, Department of History, University of Missouri-Columbia, Columbia, Missouri 65211. The deadline for submission of proposals to the OAH is January 15, 2001. See http://www.oah.org/meetings/2002/call.html for the meeting's theme. Email questions to: MonhollonR@missouri.edu
