The 2004 Biennial Scholars' Conference on American Jewish History will meet in Washington, DC, at American University and at the Library of Congress, June 6-8, 2004. The conference is sponsored by the American Jewish Historical Society, the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives, the Library of Congress, and the National Archives and Records Administration, which are the partners of the Commission for Commemorating 350 Years of American Jewish History, and by American University's Jewish Studies Program. Since 2004 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the famed Peekskill Conference on the Writing of American Jewish History, the committee especially invites papers that reexamine that conference and the themes that it raised. Proposals for sessions and individual papers in diverse areas of the American Jewish experience are invited. The former are especially encouraged. Graduate students completing dissertations may submit proposals accompanied by a letter of recommendation from their advisor. One-page paper abstracts, panel proposals, and a short biography (250 words) are due October 1, 2003.
