The Conference organizers of the 10th Annual Researching New York Conference invite proposals on any aspect of New York State history, in any period -- panels, papers, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, documentary, and media or multi-media presentations on any topic are welcome. The Conference will be held at the University at Albany, Albany New York, on November 20th and 21st, 2008. Researching New York brings together historians, researchers, archivists, archaeologits, public historians, librarians, graduate students, teachers, Web site creators, filmmakers, and documentarians to share their work on New York State history.
To mark the upcoming 60th anniversary of the establishment of the State University of New York (SUNY), we especially welcome proposals that explore any aspect of education in New York State—in public and private institutions, in the development of public policy, formal and informal, and in schools and communities throughout New York State. We encourage submissions that explore this long, rich, and diverse history from any perspective and in any time period.
Proposals are due by JULY 15, 2008. Full panel proposals, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, film screenings and media presentations are preferred. Partial panels and individual submissions will be considered. For panels and full proposals, please submit a one-page abstract of the complete session, a one page abstract for each paper or presentation, and a one-page curriculum vita for each participant. Individual submissions should include a one-page abstract and one-page curriculum vita. All submissions must include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. All proposals must clearly state any anticipated technology needs or scheduling considerations. We prefer electronic submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also seek commentators for panels. If you would like to participate as a commentator, please send an e-mail to email@example.com indicating your area of expertise, along with a one-page vita.
Researching New York is sponsored by the University at Albany Department of History & History Graduate Student Organization and the New York State Archives Partnership Trust.
