The CCPH Conference Program Committee welcomes proposals for papers, roundtable discussions, media presentations, and other program formats, either as individual presentations or as complete sessions. Panels and roundtables should include a moderator and at least two presenters. The Program Committee can help presenters flesh out sessions, panels, tours, or other activities related to their topics. Please submit your proposal by April 15 to the Program Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a 100-200 word abstract of your 20-minute individual or 90-minute group presentation; all presenters’ names, affiliations, and contact information, including email; and any audio-visual equipment requirements. (CCPH will do its best to provide hardware compatible with your CD, flash memory, or 35 mm slides, but cannot guarantee equipment availability. Please contact CCPH if you have AV questions.) In late May we will confirm your paper/session schedule.
“Community” is a loaded word with many meanings. A community can be a spot on the map or a place in the heart, a tangible locale rooted in space and time, an identity no less real because imagined, a focus of remembrance, of concern, of aspiration, of politics and of policy. Much of California history has turned on questions of community. This year’s conference theme, History and Community in California, invites presentations that investigate all aspects of our state’s past in which community themes have played a significant role. Our venue, the San Gabriel Valley (Arcadia), provides a convenient base camp for exploring recent changes in community demographics and culture, especially Asian-American immigration and settlement.
