The 25th Annual Mid-America History Conference will be held in Memphis, Tennessee, September 18-20, 2003, on the campus of the University of Memphis. The conference will be held jointly with the annual graduate student conference on African American history also sponsored by the University.
A primary theme of both conferences is the 1954 Brown v. Topeka Board of Education Supreme Court decision and the impact of that decision. We wish to emphasize, however, that papers and sessions in all fields of historical inquiry are welcome.
In addition to scholarly papers and sessions the conference also welcomes proposals for workshops and roundtables on a variety of historical activities. We are particularly interested in panels on such topics as applied history, historical agencies, historians at work, historical journals, the teaching of history, graduate education in history and so on.
Finally, we would like to hear from individuals who are willing to serve as session chairs or commentators. An indication of interest along with a one page CV is required.
