The fiftieth annual meeting of the Missouri Conference on History, sponsored by The State Historical Society of Missouri, will take place on April 3-4, 2008, at the Courtyard Marriott in Columbia, Missouri.
Proposals for conference sessions and papers related to any and all historical topics or eras are welcome; topics need not relate to Missouri history. The conference is particularly interested in proposals for complete sessions, including panelists, chair, and commentator. Anyone interested in organizing sessions and presenting papers should submit an abstract and a one-page curriculum vita by e-mail to:
Gary R. Kremer
The State Historical Society of Missouri
The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2007.
Richard Kirkendall, who served as the keynote speaker at the first Missouri Conference on History in 1959, will reprise his role for the fiftieth anniversary meeting. His address will be “Faith and Foreign Policy: An Exploration into the Mind of Harry Truman.” Kirkendall, who taught at Wesleyan University, the University of Missouri-Columbia, Indiana University, and Iowa State University, is professor emeritus at the University of Washington, where he served ten years as the Scott and Dorothy Bullitt Professor of American History.
