The American Association for History and Computing (AAHC)
2006 Annual Conference
Call for Papers
Electronically hosted by TELR
(Technology Enhanced Teaching & Learning)
at The Ohio State University
using its Carmen course management system
April 24-27, 2006
The AAHC invites you to make history online.
If you are an historian (academic, public, secondary education, graduate student) or engage history through a related discipline (librarian, archivist, publisher, editor, etc.), you are invited to submit your panel or single presentation proposals for the first exclusively online history conference.
The conference will run for four days with presentations and panels taking place asynchronously. The keynote presentations and Q&A will take place in real time.
Individual presentations may be submitted as traditional papers (8-10 double-space pages), e-posters (online posters made in PowerPoint can be easily uploaded), roundtables, and ”gun-shot” sessions of four to ten individuals (2-4 page comments per participant, depending on numbers). Some participants might want to record their presentations (15-20 minutes), and make it available on their website via a link. We will also consider other formats.
Proposals may be about any aspect of history, as the technology focus can be simply that you want to present your work online.
We also encourage proposals that engage how doing, teaching, presenting, and preserving history is being transformed by new technology (webpages, blogs, simulation games, digital scholarship and storage, computer modeling, podcasts, and vodcasts).
Finally, but not least, we want to encourage presentations that consider the future of history. What transformations and implications might arise from the vast advancements in technology and their applications to history? What role will history have in the future? What happens if historians and other history-related professionals ignore the new technologies of today and tomorrow?
All presenters must be current members of the AAHC. For more information about membership, please visit our website www.theaahc.org.
Proposals for complete panels should include a chair. 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 name, address, telephone number, and email address for each participant.
Deadline for Proposal Submissions: January 15, 2006. Electronic submissions are encouraged.
Deadline for submitting final materials for presentation at the April conference is March 1, 2006. We will not be able to accept materials close to the conference because of the logistics involved in uploading materials.
