The 27th annual Great Lakes History Conference, sponsored by Grand Valley State University, will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan on October 26, 2002. The theme of the conference is "Cultural History." We are pleased to announce that Dr. Richard Stites of Georgetown University will be our keynote speaker. We welcome papers and arranged sessions in all areas of historical study; preference will be given to those that relate to the theme.
Sessions will last 90 minutes. Papers must take no longer than 30 minutes in two-paper sessions or 20 minutes in three-paper sessions. If you are interested in presenting a paper, please send an abstract of approximately 200 words, together with a short c.v. (please include your summer address, e-mail address, and telephone number, if different from your current one), by May 15, 2002. Those interested in chairing and commenting on a session should send a c.v. and indicate areas of expertise.
Conference headquarters will again be at the L. V. Eberhard Center of Grand Valley State University in downtown Grand Rapids. Hotel accommodations will be available at the Days Inn of Grand Rapids -- Downtown, across the street from the Eberhard Center. The conference will be within easy walking distance of museums, restaurants, and entertainment. Grand Rapids is served by most major and regional airlines, as well as by Amtrak.
