For Researching New York 2007, we invite proposals for papers, panels, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, documentary, and media or multi-media presentations on any aspect or time period of New York history -- upstate and down -- from settlement to the present. The conference will be held at the University at Albany, SUNY November 15th and 16th, 2007.
We especially encourage proposals that explore the varied and complex role New York State has played in American political life. From the days of Newcastle's New York, when the colony was at the center of imperial ambitions to the present when commentators are forecasting a presidential race in 2008 between two New York politicians, New York has profoundly influenced American political identity. New York State and its people have helped set the tone for political leadership and the development of public policy nationwide. We invite paper and panel submissions that explore this rich and diverse history from any perspective and in any period.
Researching New York is a major initiative of the Department of History and the History Graduate Student Organization in association with the New York State Archives and Archives Partnership Trust. The Conference theme is "Power and Politics in New York State," however anyone working in any area of New York State history is invited to submit a proposal for consideration for Researching NY 2007.
Full panel proposals, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, and media presentations are encourages. Partial panels and individual submissions will be considered. For panels and full proposals, please submit a one-page abstract of the complete session, a one page abstract for each paper or presentation, and a one-page curriculum vita for each participant. Individual submissions should include a one-page abstract and one-page curriculum vita. All submissions must include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. All proposals must include any anticipated audio visual needs.
We prefer electronic submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details at http://nystatehistory.org/researchny/rsny.html.
