"The Political History Workshop"
The Houghton Mifflin Company
I would like to announce the second in a series of "political history
workshops" scheduled to coincide with the annual meeting of the Organization of American Historians (OAH). The workshop is designed to provide a forum where scholars interested in the study of politics and the state can discuss their research and meet other people in the field. It is especially designed to bring together junior and senior members of the profession and foster a larger sense of community among scholars. I hope that you will support this initiative by attending one of the workshops this year. The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, April 28.
The theme for the workshop this year is "State and Society." Each workshop will be devoted to one paper. Those presenting papers will give a brief outline of important points (10 minutes), which will be followed by about 60 minutes of discussion. All those wishing to participate in the workshop will be asked to read the paper ahead of time.
If you are interested in attending any or all of the workshops, please send an email to Steve Gillon (email@example.com) indicating which paper(s) you would like to receive. Please include your regular, snail mail address as well. I will send you the paper, along with the meeting room where the sessions will be held, at least two weeks before the convention. Breakfast will be provided thanks to the generosity of Jeff Greene, history editor at Houghton Mifflin, College Division. Each workshop will be limited to about 15 participants.
