CFP: American Association for History and Computing Annual Meeting, March 13 - 15, 2003
Conference Theme: "Looking Forward - Looking Back: The 10th Annual Meeting of the American Association for History and Computing."
Panel and paper proposals are now being solicited for the Annual Meeting of the American Association for History and Computing. The 2001 Conference will be held at the Westin Hotel, Indiana Convention Center, in Indianapolis, Indiana, March 13-15, 2003.
University and college instructors, K-12 teachers, librarians, publishers, editors, archivists, interpreters, students, software developers, and all other history professionals are encouraged to participate. Many opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange will be provided, and panel and paper proposals on any topics relating to the use of digital technologies in history are encouraged.
Suggested themes for panels or individual papers might include:
Changes in computing and history over the past ten years
What is new and different, what seems to be continuous and stable?
What have we learned about what works and doesn't work, in the classroom, in e-publications, etc?
Has the electronic classroom truly revolutionized teaching and learning?
What is on the horizon? Will higher education continue it's love/hate relationship with educational technologies?
How has information technology and the internet changed the face of historical research and access to scholarly collections?
Proposals may be made for either complete panels or individual papers. Multimedia presentations are especially encouraged, but participants are advised that they are responsible for providing their own laptop computers and software as needed. The conference hosts will make available LCD projectors and a limited number of live Internet connections.
Suggested formats for full panels include three 30-minute papers, four 20-minute papers, or a round table format. Other innovative format proposals will be considered. Proposals for complete panels should also include a chair. A panel may include a formal comment or question and response with the audience. All proposals must include a 200 word abstract for each paper along with a brief vita for each participant. Please be sure to indicate which member of the panel will serve as the contact person for future correspondence. Please include the name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address for each participant.
