Expanding Horizons, Collapsing Frontiers:
The Macro and Micro in World History
Sixteenth-Annual WHA Conference in Milwaukee, 28 June-1 July 2007
Call for Papers
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Marquette University will jointly host the Sixteenth-Annual World History Association Conference at the UWM Conference Center in downtown Milwaukee, 28 June-1 July 2007. The World History Association (WHA) invites proposals from scholars and teachers for full panels, single papers, and roundtables on topics related to this year’s theme, “Expanding Horizons, Collapsing Frontiers: The Macro and Micro in World History.” Proposals should include the title and a brief (300 words or less) description of the paper, panel, or roundtable topic. Proposals should include the names of the chair, presenters, and discussants and a one-page CV for each. The Program Committee will give preference to proposals for full sessions and roundtables and will schedule them in the most advantageous time slots. As warranted, the Committee will fill out the program by placing individual papers into sessions of its own devising. Papers and sessions that do not directly address the conference theme will be considered and may be accepted as the program allows.
The conference will begin with registration and a reception on 28 June (2:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.) and continue with panels and activities from the morning of 29 June to midday 1 July. The conference site is six blocks from Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee Art Museum, and eight blocks from the grounds of Summerfest, the World’s Largest Music Festival, which will be in full swing during the conference. The local organizers have secured blocks of specially discounted rooms at two downtown locations. Information regarding housing, registration, and related issues will begin appearing on the WHA website www.thewha.org beginning in August 2006.
To submit a proposal, please use the form available at the WHA web site http://www.thewha.org. Please note: Proposals are due by February 1, 2007, to allow time for early notification and travel planning. No proposal will be accepted after the due date. Notwithstanding acceptance of a proposal, any presenter not registered for the conference by 1 May 2007 will be dropped from the program.
