CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
Santa Fé stands as a place celebrated for its recognition of distinctive communities rooted in traditional societies and ancestral landscapes with the intended purpose of maintaining a continuity of cultures. Such commitment to cultural continuity has often been at odds with the growth and progressive nature of both Santa Fé and much of continental United States where issues are framed by conflict, negotiation, and adaptation. This place fittingly provides a unique environment to consider the theme of Many Histories, Many Publics—Common Ground.
As public historians we support the belief that there is value in the discipline of History and in the application of the discipline for a wide range of audiences. Our members come from a variety of places and ‘practice’ in a multiplicity of venues—community, corporate, institutional, teaching and training, archives and libraries, preservation, consulting, and within academe—to name just a few. This meeting invites exploration of the work generated by public historians in a wide range of venues. Exploring the issues of ‘common ground’ for public historians—questions, challenges, and support—greatly enhances the discussion and informs the conference participants. Such proposals are equally beneficial and welcome in this program. Santa Fé’s unique historical position provides the setting for an exploration into this common ground that public historians occupy in the contemporary world.
The program committee invites the submission of presentations in the form of traditional panels, roundtables, poster sessions, and workshops. We further encourage proposals on pedagogy, online sessions, debates, visual and musical performances, films, and the many formats and practices used in diverse community and institutional settings. For presenters, please consider the importance of engaging the participating audience in a manner that is innovative and provides interactive models for use within home organizations and institutions. Full panel sessions are preferred, but individual proposals will be considered.
Session Proposals must include:
A cover page indicating the type of session (panel, roundtable, poster, workshop, performance, etc.), with a one paragraph overview of the presentation. Please include any audio visual requirements.
A list of the panel participants including moderator and presenters, and (commentator—if invited).
A one paragraph description of each presentation within the panel including the presenter’s title.
A one-page resume for each participant including full contact information (mail and e-mail addresses, institutional or group affiliation, and phone numbers)
Individual Proposal submissions should follow the above outlines requirements. The Program Committee will make every effort to construct sessions from topically related single proposals.
