The ninety-ninth Annual Meeting of the Organization of American Historians and the twenty-eighth Annual Meeting of the National Council on Public History will be held jointly at the Hilton Washington Hotel in Washington, D.C., April 19-22, 2006. The program committee invites proposals from all practitioners of American history or related disciplines. The program theme Our America/Nuestra Ameríca invites participants to explore the many meanings of “America” for people living in North America and beyond. Touching on the concept of Nuestra Ameríca as articulated by nineteenth-century Cuban poet and patriot José Martí, the program committee encourages sessions that expand the definition of “America” beyond borders and across bodies of water, and to engage in debates about the place of the United States in the Western hemisphere and the world. The committee welcomes sessions that explore the transformation of U.S. society through immigration to and migration within the geopolitical boundaries of the nation-state.
