If you care about the past, please join us in San Luis Obispo on October 23-25, 2008 for the 28th annual conference of the California Council for the Promotion of History (CCPH). You’ll have an opportunity to share your historical interests with others, and to discover what’s new and exciting in California history.
This year’s conference theme, Many Californias, Many Histories, is spacious enough to embrace the full diversity of peoples, places and events that together make up the history of our state. We especially welcome presentations that interpret local episodes in their broader state, national, and international contexts.
Proposals may be for individual papers or full sessions, panels, or round table discussions (with at least three presenters). CCPH is also open to more venturesome formats, including performance. Individual presentations are scheduled for 20 minutes, full sessions 90 minutes, with time reserved for comments from the audience. CCPH program coordinators may be able to help you develop symposia or workshops that dovetail with several planned mobile sessions that will explore local and regional historical themes at various sites throughout San Luis Obispo County.
As always, CCPH welcomes presentations by students, new professionals, and local historians. A limited number of conference stipends may be available for students and new professionals. Look for stipend information in May on the CCPH web site, www.csus.edu/org/ccph. The conference program will be online in mid-August. For further information, please e-mail the CCPH program committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you will join us in San Luis Obispo. Please submit by email a 100 – 200-word abstract of your 20-minute individual presentation, or 90-minute full session panel or roundtable session, that includes your name (and names of all other presenters, if applicable), your affiliation, contact information (including phone number and e-mail), and any audio-visual needs. The deadline for proposals is April 30, 2008.
