The deadline for submitting papers as well as panel or roundtable proposals for the upcoming World History Association (WHA) Conference has been extended by two weeks. The new deadline is 15 February. Please download applications from www.thewha.org, and transmit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Marquette University will jointly host the Conference at the UWM Conference Center in downtown Milwaukee, 28 June-1 July 2007. 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. Information regarding housing, registration, and related issues will begin appearing on the WHA website www.thewha.org beginning in August 2006.
The 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,” a theme that easily accommodates itself to crusade studies of every variety.
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.
To submit a proposal, please use the form available at the WHA web site http://www.thewha.org. Please note: Proposals are due by 1 February 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.
