Call for Proposals
American Association for History and Computing
“Digital Scholarship: 'Doing History' with Technology”
Marriott Wardman Park and Omni Shoreham
January 8-11, 2004
Panel and paper proposals are now being solicited for the Annual Meeting of the American Association for History and Computing. To celebrate the association’s eleventh year of activity and to facilitate the organization’s aim of catalyzing new approaches to pedagogy and scholarship, the 2004 conference will be held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the American Historical Association at the Marriott Wardman Park and Omni Shoreham hotels in Washington, DC.
University and college instructors, K-12 teachers, librarians, publishers, editors, archivists, interpreters, students, software developers, and all other history/technology 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.
For this year’s theme, the AAHC is especially interested in presentations that employ new technologies to represent the past in new ways, or that offer new narratives, interpretations and arguments, such as through GIS mapping, VRML, virtual reality, etc.
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.
Evolving information about the conference can be found on the association’s web site.
