2004 Annual Meeting
American Society for Ethnohistory
Holiday Inn, Chicago Mart Plaza
October 27-30, 2004
Across Space/Through time
The Newberry Library’s D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian History is pleased to host the 2004 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Ethnohistory. The theme of this year’s conference, “Continuing Encounters: Across Space/Through Time,” focuses attention on a process that has been integral to the evolution of ethnohistorical scholarship over the course of the past decade. Employed initially by scholars whose work emphasized the contact, colonial, and early national periods, these explorations detailed the consequences of 1492 in terms of complex cultural, social, spiritual, political, economic, microbial, epidemiological, and ideational exchanges between Europeans and indigenous peoples. Later works have shown that encounters are neither restricted to these categories, nor bounded by space or time. They are global processes. They preceded 1492. They continue.
We especially invite proposals that speak to and think creatively about this year’s theme of encounters and the myriad forms they have taken across space and through time. But we also welcome those covering other themes as well. Individuals may submit independently. Complete panels are preferred. The deadline for applications is June 15, 2004.
We are strongly encouraging electronic submissions. All of the necessary forms will be made accessible through the American Society for Ethnohistory’s website. Completed forms can then be emailed directly as Microsoft Word attachments to the email address provided. For those submitting proposals via U.S. Mail, please send panel/paper abstracts, registration fees, application cover letter, and curriculum vitae to the address below.
For additional information, email or call.
Conference details will be updated regularly at our website
