The University of Mississippi announces a call for papers for its second annual Conference on the Civil War, to be held 19-21 May, 2006.
The Department of History invites paper submissions that engage the conference theme, "Understanding the African American Civil War Experience." Papers might explore the diverse experiences of black men and women in military or domestic spheres, North or South, whether free, enslaved or fugitive, and either during the war or the aftermath of war.
The conference seeks to appeal to a broad spectrum of Civil War professionals, students and interested non-specialists, and the successful proposal will sustain both scholarly and popular interest.
The conference will also feature a tour highlighting the University's association with the Civil War and local nineteenth-century African American history, as well as a visit to the Civil War Interpretive Center in Corinth, Mississippi, which emphasizes the significance of that city's freed black community during the war.
Submit your proposal, including a current vita, to John Neff, Department of History, University of Mississippi, University, MS 38677 (662-915-3969; firstname.lastname@example.org). Please indicate in the proposal any audio-visual presentation needs that may be required. All paper proposals received before 1 February 2006 will be considered.
