* Individual paper abstracts, panel proposals, workshop plans, and other program suggestions are invited for the 2006 conference to be held in New York City. Presentations may consider any aspect of the history of New York State over the past 400 years. Diverse theoretical perspectives and innovative methodological approaches are welcomed. Papers on New York City-based topics are strongly encouraged.
* What is the Conference?
The Conference on New York State History is an annual meeting of academic and public historians, librarians and archivists, educators, and publishers who come together to discuss topics and issues related to the people of New York State in historical perspective and to share information and ideas regarding historical research, programming, and the networking of resources and services. Ten to fifteen presentation sessions, workshops, and a keynote address permit more than fifty individuals to take part in the formal program. Special consideration is accorded first-time presenters, graduate students, and local government historians. The conference is self-sustaining and is organized by a committee of historians from a variety of institutions across the state.
Interested parties are encouraged to discuss proposals and any conference-related ideas with Field Horne, the conference chair (e-mail preferred). The Program Committee will meet to consider proposals in mid-January. Applicants will be notified immediately thereafter.
* What to submit: All proposals must be received by January 6, 2006 at 12:00 noon. A proposal should be a one-page description of each presentation—not the full manuscript—and must include the following information: paper and/or session titles, names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of all participants, and all equipment needs and scheduling requests. It should also briefly discuss sources, methodology, and argument. All program participants are required to register for the conference.
