Society for History in the Federal Government - 2004 Annual Meeting
Call for Papers
The annual meeting of the Society for History in the Federal Government will be held on Thursday, March 18, 2004, in the Thomas Jefferson Building, Library of Congress, Washington, DC. The Society's twenty-fifth anniversary is a focus for the conference and the theme will be "The History of History in the Federal Government: Past, Present and Future." We encourage paper and panel proposals that focus broadly on issues and events of interest to members of the Society when it was founded, as it has matured, and as it seeks to move into a challenging future. A plenary session will elaborate upon the historical context in which the Society was created (Three Mile Island, U.S. Bicentennial, etc.), and include remarks by the Society's early leaders. Proposals for panels that focus on federal history programs today in all areas of the government are encouraged, as are papers and panels detailing some of the current issues and events affecting the community of federal historians today (access to information, contracting, publishing, Homeland Security). We invite proposals on all aspects of historical activities in the Federal government, historic preservation, and public history. Futuristic perspectives are welcome either separate from, or incorporated into panels and papers on current federal government programs.
Members may submit proposals for complete sessions (preferred) or individual papers. Non-members may also submit proposals but must pay the non-members' registration fee to attend the meeting.
Proposals should include a one-page abstract of the session or paper and brief resumes of proposed participants.
The deadline for submission of proposals is January 15, 2004. They should be mailed to the program chair at the address below.
