The Department of History at Bowling Green State University is pleased to announce it will be holding a graduate student conference on policy history, November 9-11, 2001. The theme of the conference is the "The Social Impact of Policy in History." Although the conference focuses on the influence of policy in society, we welcome papers and panels that study other aspects of policy history or papers that examine the theme from different perspectives. These other perspectives may include, but are certainly not limited to, economics, political science, sociology, and American studies. We welcome the submission of individual papers and panels based on original research that address important issues of policy history.
Sessions will last 2 hours and papers should be approximately 25-30 minutes in length. Those interested in presenting papers should send a one-page abstract and a short c.v. Students proposing panels should submit a three-page abstract outlining the focus and purpose of the panel and a short c.v. for all panel members. The deadline for proposals is July 1, 2001. Those interested in chairing and commenting on a session should send a c.v. and indicate areas of expertise. Participants will be notified of acceptance by September 1, 2001.
Please address all abstracts to the address listed below.
