Call for Proposals: “World History: The Next Ten Years.”
Conference March 12-14, 2004, at the John Hancock Hotel and Conference Center in Boston’s Back Bay. Co-sponsored by the World History Center (Northeastern University) and the World History Association.
This conference gathers world history practitioners to review the past ten years of growth in their field and to identify the approaches that will enable world history to become a substantially grounded, well funded, and intellectually exciting field of research and teaching. Practitioners are sought from several overlapping groups:
Researchers in world history,
Directors of graduate programs,
Teachers of world history at secondary and college level,
Professional development staff active in world history
Leaders of other institutions affecting the study of world history (including publishers, testing agencies, governmental and philanthropic funding agencies).
Conference organizers seek proposals for papers and roundtable sessions (due by November 25, 2003) of relevance to the future of world-historical studies. Proposals include title, abstract (100-200 words), and full identification of participants. Program committee includes members of WHA and WHC. Conference schedule to be announced December 15, 2003.
