2004 ASEH/NCPH Annual Meeting
Victoria, British Columbia
March 31- April 4, 2004
The joint conference in 2004 between the American Society of Environmental Historians and the National Council on Public History will revolve around the theme "Cultural Places and Natural Spaces: Memory, History, and Landscape." The conference theme reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the conference between the ASEH and the NCPH as members of these organizations discover common ground. The program committee seeks proposals for sessions that will explore the wide variety of cultural, environmental, social, and public histories that have transformed the places and spaces of our world. We also are interested in sessions that investigate the interplay of memory, history, and landscape.
Since the 2004 conference will be held in Victoria, B.C., sessions that examine border issues, both physical as well as metaphorical, are welcome. Sessions that explore other issues in environmental and public history will also be considered. The 2004 program committee will accept proposals that are focused solely on environmental history, public history, or a combination of the two. In addition to sessions devoted to the presentation of papers, the committee also invites proposals for workshops, roundtables, panels, performances, and off-site tours and activities.
Please consult the guidelines about conducting workshops at conferences on the NCPH website before you propose a workshop.
The program committee encourages proposals for entire sessions. We also
will accept individual paper submissions. A call for poster session proposals will be released in September 2003.
All proposals must include the following information:
A cover page, including complete mailing address, e-mail, phone
number and affiliation of each participant
An abstract of no more than 500 words for the session as a whole
A prospectus of no more than 250 words for each paper or
A two-page vita for each participant
Any requests for audio-visual equipment for the session.
Individuals interested in acting as chairs or commentators are welcome to submit their names to the committee.
All proposals must be received no later than 5 April, 2003.
All proposals must be submitted via e-mail to the contact below.
Proposals should be attached as either a Word or Wordperfect file.
