CONFERENCE ON NEW YORK CITY HISTORY:
CALL FOR PAPERS AND PRESENTATIONS
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday October 5th, 6th and 7th, 2001 the Gotham Center for New York City History will host a Conference on New York City History at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street).
Papers or presentations on all aspects of New York City history are welcome. They may deal with any time period, from the colonial era to the recent past. They may be in a variety of formats, from traditional papers and panels, to workshops, dialogues and media presentations. We encourage those interested in submitting proposals to assume an audience of scholars and members of the general public, and to strive for clarity and accessibility.
We also hope to present a limited number of conference sessions on the theme of "Past Into Present". These sessions will feature papers or presentations that bring historical scholarship to bear on current public policy issues and that set contemporary debates in historical context. Such sessions should attempt to mix scholars with former or current policy makers/advocates.
Those interested in submitting proposals for individual presentations or complete sessions can do so by sending their name, address, phone, fax, e-mail, affiliation, title of proposal, names of other proposed presenters (if any), audio-visual needs, CV (not necessary to include cvs of proposed co-panelists), along with a 500 (max) word description of the presentation or event and a list of any proposed co-panelists to: Program Committee, Gotham Center for New York City History ,The Graduate School and University Center, The City University of New York, 365 Fifth Avenue, Room 6103, New York, NY 10016-4309 e-mail: email@example.com.
