In 2004 OAH, in conjunction with Georgia State University Department of History and the Georgia Association of Historians, will host its second regional conference. The conference theme is "Practicing American History in the South" and its aim is to serve anew its members at community and four-year colleges and high schools, and those employed in government, museums, and the private sector as well as in major universities.
The regional conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, on the campus of Georgia State University, 8-11 July 2004. The meeting takes as its special charge a desire to reach historians and graduate students who find it difficult to attend the national meeting held in the spring each year. Considerable attention will be devoted to professional development and the practice of history both in classrooms and in public settings in the South.
We encourage formats that promote discussion and participation, for example, roundtables and debates with up to five panelists. Although session proposals are preferred, we welcome individual paper submissions. We also welcome volunteers to chair or comment at sessions, as assigned by the Program Committee.
