The Louisiana Historical Association invites proposals for its upcoming annual meeting to be held in Monroe, Louisiana on March 19-21, 2009.
The LHA welcomes proposals for complete panels and individual papers, as well as roundtable sessions, on Louisiana history broadly defined. Proposals in public history are especially welcome. While the focus of the conference is Louisiana and southern history, the LHA sponsored its first European and World History panel in 2008 and the 2009 Program Committee encourages panel proposals to continue this opportunity for area non-Louisiana scholars.
Proposals should include a 250-word abstract for each paper and a brief (one-page) curriculum vitae for each presenter. Those interested in chairing a session or commenting also are invited to submit a brief curriculum vitae to the Program Committee.
The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2008. (All proposals should be submitted via email to the chair of the 2009 LHA Program Committee, Dr. Mary Farmer-Kaiser, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The body of your email should include your name, affiliation, contact information (phone and email address), and proposal title. Please send supporting materials (abstracts and CVs) in a MS Word attachment.
