Part of Archives & Artifacts: The 119th Annual Meeting of the American Historical Association -- Seattle, Washington -- January 6-9, 2005
The American Association for History and Computing (AAHC), an affiliate of the American Historical Association, invites panel and single paper proposals for the annual conference in Seattle, Washington, January 6-9, 2005. For more information on the AHA’s annual meeting see www.historians.org/annual/index.cfm#next.
University and college professors of History and allied disciplines, as well as librarians, archivists, publishers, editors, graduate students, K-12 teachers and instructional designers from the US and abroad, are encouraged to submit proposals for this exciting conference. Panel and paper proposals on any topic relating to the use of digital technologies in history and related disciplines are encouraged. The theme of the conference, Archives and Artifacts does not in any way exclude from consideration or put at a disadvantage panels unrelated to this theme.
Proposals may be made for either complete panels or individual papers. Multimedia presentations are especially encouraged, but participants are advised that they are responsible for providing their own laptop computers, software, and LCD projectors as needed. The AAHC will make available one LCD projector and a limited number of live Internet connections.
Suggested formats for full panels include three 30-minute papers, four 20-minute papers, or a round table format. Other innovative format proposals will be considered. Proposals for complete panels should also include a chair. A panel may include a formal comment or question and response with the audience. All proposals must include a 200-word abstract for each paper along with a brief vita for each participant. Please be sure to indicate which member of the panel will serve as the contact person for future correspondence. Please include the name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address for each participant. All presenters must be current members of the AAHC. For more information about the AAHC and the AAHC’s portion of the AHA conference in Seattle, please visit our website at www.theaahc.org
