We particularly seek papers in Michigan history and the history of the Great Lakes region. The Great Lakes History Conference is a general academic conference; all fields of history are represented. Professor Ira Berlin of the University of Maryland will be our keynote speaker. Send an abstract of approximately 200 words, together with a short c.v., by May 15, 2003 to the address below.
