Columbus State University (Columbus, GA)
Thursday, 17 October - Saturday, 19 October 2002
"Borders, Boundaries and Crossing Over"
The Southeast World History Association (SEWHA) is now accepting proposals for its 2002 Annual Conference. This year's meeting will be held on the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Historic Downtown Columbus, Georgia. The conference theme, "borders, boundaries and crossing over," offers possibilities for panels in general world history expressed geographically, culturally, socially and politically. Although historians traditionally have limited historical enquiry to national and regional boundaries, we encourage paper submissions that "cross over" or otherwise challenge artificial boundaries and borders. This would include topics such as trans-cultural exchanges, migrations, internationalism, intellectually history, environment, science and technology, gender and the family, peace and war. Saturday will be reserved for panels that address pedagogy. The deadline for proposals is 15 August 2002, however, early submissions are encouraged.
Please send proposals for panels or individual papers to the address below.
SEWHA is a regional affiliate of the World History Association.
