CALL FOR PAPERS
HISTORY OF EDUCATION SOCIETY, 2008 ANNUAL MEETING
The History of Education Society will hold its 2008 Annual Meeting at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront hotel, 333 First Street South, St. Petersburg, Florida, from Thursday, November 6 to Sunday, November 9, 2008.
The Program Committee invites proposals on all topics relevant to the history of education in any time period. Proposals may be submitted for an individual paper, a complete paper session, or a panel discussion. A proposal for an individual paper spells out the paper's focus and rationale; if accepted, this paper and several others related to it will be combined into a paper session. A proposal for a complete paper session provides a prospectus for a coherent collection of three or four papers, including the names of the authors, a chair, and discussant. A panel discussion is a session in which a group of qualified panelists discusses an important issue in the field, where the panelists are not presenting papers.
Please submit proposals on or before February 15, 2008 to the program chair, Eileen Tamura, at firstname.lastname@example.org. All proposals should be sent in electronic form and not hard copy. Send them as e-mail attachments in the form of MS Word documents. For the e-mail message in which you transmit the proposal, use this subject line: HES PROPOSAL.
Eliminate any identifying information and references from your abstract and proposal.
Submit your proposal as a single Word document, and include the following 4 elements, separated by a page break:
A one-page cover sheet, listing the title of the proposed paper or session, and the name, affiliation, and full contact information for the proposal organizer and for each participant, with email address, mailing address, telephone number, and fax number. Indicate the preferred session format (paper session, panel discussion).
An abstract of the proposed paper, paper session, or panel discussion, limited to 50 words.
A two-page proposal, single-spaced, describing an individual paper, OR a three-four-page proposal, describing a complete paper session or panel discussion (exclusive of references). The proposal should include the following four elements: the topic/theme/study, the findings, the significance and how the work relates to other scholarship in the field, and the sources.
A one-page c.v. of each participant.
The Program Committee hopes to complete its work by May 30, 2008.
