The Pennsylvania Historical Association invites proposals for individual papers, panels, roundtable discussions, and special sessions to be given at its 77th annual meeting in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on October 16-18, 2008. This meeting is open to scholars, researchers, educators, public historians, and professionals who share an interest in the history of Pennsylvania and the mid-Atlantic region from the founding years to the present.
The PHA welcomes proposals on a wide range of themes and from numerous disciplines, including but not limited to history, material culture, educational strategies and theories, historic preservation, and museum studies. Full panel proposals are encouraged.
The 2008 conference commemorates the 75th anniversary of the PHA’s annual meeting; the first one was held at Bethlehem and hosted by Lehigh University in 1933. To honor this anniversary, the PHA especially welcomes panels and papers that explore the continuities and transformations that Pennsylvania history – and particularly its themes, ideas, source materials, and interpretations – has undergone since the organization met for the first time in 1933.
Although electronic submissions are preferred, those submitting proposals through regular mail should send six copies of their proposal. Proposals must include a title, description of paper or panel, brief CV for all participants involved, and full contact information.
Please send your submissions and any questions you may have to the program committee chair, Judith Ridner, Department of History, Muhlenberg College, 2400 Chew St., Allentown, PA 18104, phone (484) 664-3326 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals will be accepted until January 15, 2008. Participants will be notified of the committee’s decision no later than April.
