CfP: American Society for Ethnohistory 2008 Annual Meeting: "Coalitions, Collaborations, Conflicts" will be November 12-16, 2008 at the Hilton Hotel and Conference Centre in Eugene, Oregon.
This year's conference theme focuses on coalitions and collaborations of various forms, both across and within racial, ethnic, tribal, state, and national boundaries, across and within professional and institutional settings, the likely as well as the unlikely, the productive and the vexed. Ethnohistory as a field began as a collaboration among lawyers and scholars of several disciplines, though such work was sometimes in coalition and sometimes in conflict with tribes during the Indian Claims Commission era in the United States. We invite participants to reflect on the past, present, and future of such coalitions, collaborations, and conflicts in ethnohistorical work, as they relate to legal claims, political efforts, museum representations, archaeological ethics, and crafting community ethnohistories. We encourage panels and papers that explore these complex histories across all periods and geographies. Panels and papers on other themes are also welcome.
Individuals may submit proposals for a single paper, though complete panel submissions are preferred. The deadline for applications is June 15, 2008. Applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals by September 1, 2008
The necessary forms for submissions are available on the website of the American Society for Ethnohistory (ASE): http://www.ethnohistory.org/. It is not necessary to register for the conference in order to have a paper or panel accepted. Once papers and panels are accepted, however, participants must register as an ASE member.
Preference is for submission of proposals by email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
For those submitting by regular mail, please provide three copies of the panel/paper abstracts, cover letter, and c.v. for each participant to:
