San Jose, the epicenter of Silicon Valley, is a fitting venue for the 26th annual California Council for the Promotion of History conference, which explores the changing character of California through time and will be held October 26-28, 2006. From Adobe Bricks to Adobe® Bytes: Historical Transformations in California interprets its theme broadly to include transforming circumstances, events, groups and individuals from all periods both before and after European contact. Topics that probe the issues, methods, and outcomes of public history practice in California and the western U.S. are especially welcome.
The Program Committee invites proposals for papers, roundtable discussions, media presentations, and other program formats. Prospective presenters may propose individual contributions or complete sessions (panels and roundtables should include a moderator and at least two presenters). The Program Committee can help presenters flesh out sessions and workshops, tours, or other activities related to their topics. Please note that all presenters must register for the conference, preferably in advance.
Submit an abstract (100-200 words) for your 20-minute individual presentation or 90-minute group presentation to the Program Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2006. Include all presenters’ names, affiliations, contact information including e-mail, and audio-visual requirements.
Presenters should be aware that AV-dependent presentations are subject to technological glitches. CCPH will do its best to provide hardware compatible with your CD, flash memory card, or 35mm projection slides, but cannot guarantee hardware will be available. Please contact us if you have AV questions.
