Dancing on the Rim: Nations, Borderlands and Identities
2005 Pacific Coast Branch-American Historical Association
Corvallis, Oregon August 4-7, 2005
Deadline for submissions: January 15, 2005
The Program Committee for the 2005 Pacific Coast Branch-American History Association (PCB-AHA) annual meeting invites proposals for panels and papers that relate to the general theme, Dancing on the Rim: Nations, Borders and Identities.
The PCB-AHA is the western branch of the American Historical Association that serves members of the AHA living in the Western States of the United States and the Western Provinces of Canada. Situated on the Pacific Rim, the organization brings together historians from all geographical, chronological, and topical specializations. The Annual Meeting theme reflects the breadth and variety of interests held by the PCB-AHA membership.
The Committee encourages sessions and papers that enable conversations across our many specializations. Possibilities include, but by no means are limited to, comparative area studies, investigations of nationalism and imperialism, the workings of class, race and gender from a global perspective, examinations of social boundaries, trans-border identities, diasporic communities and comparative borderlands, the politics of memory and cultural identities, environmental and labor history, social movements and globalization. Other possibilities might include multi-national and trans-national panels such as those that explore relationships and interactions among and within the continents of Africa, Asia, Oceania, North America and Latin America. The Committee invites traditional history presentations as well as those that make use of other disciplines, such as literature, anthropology, cultural studies, ethnic studies, and art history.
Come join us in Corvallis. Corvallis is located near the Oregon Coast and between Eugene and Portland, Oregon. Submissions are encouraged for roundtable discussions, entire sessions and individual papers. We prefer to receive the submissions by email. When submitting an entire session, include an abstract that outlines the purpose of the session and designate one panelist as the contact person. Each paper proposal, whether individual or in a session, should include a one-page abstract, along with a one-page c.v., an address, phone, and email for each participant. Please indicate audio/visual needs in your proposal. The Program Committee assumes all listed individuals have agreed to participate.
