Appalachian Spring: Third Annual Conference in World History and Economics
This conference is an interdisciplinary meeting aimed at bringing together scholars from Appalachian State University (Boone, NC) with scholars from other universities in North Carolina and the surrounding states. We have already hosted two of these meetings in the past, which have been very successful. Our model is to bring a prominent keynote speaker to our campus, a person with wide interdisciplinary appeal. This year’s speaker will be Dr. Peter Lindert from the University of California, Davis, a world-renowned scholar of the economics and history of government spending and globalization. We will also feature 5-6 panels with scholarly papers, divided among different topical themes, including an undergraduate/graduate panel. This year’s theme will be Government and Progress: A World of Experience.
The conference will take place on April 26, 2008, on the Appalachian State University campus, Boone, in the beautiful North Carolina mountains. Those interested in participating should let the organizers know by March 1st, 2008. A one-page abstract describing the scholar’s proposal should be submitted to the organizers by that date. A full paper will be expected by the organizers by April 2nd, 2008. There is no registration fee. The organizers might provide funding for accommodations (pending on funding), but not for travel expenses. We will offer meals to the participants during the meeting at no cost.
