The 35th annual meeting of the French Colonial Historical Society (FCHS) will take place in San Francisco, California, May 28-30, 2009, hosted by San Francisco State University at its downtown (Market Street) campus. The theme for the conference will be “Religion and Missionaries in the French Empire,” but as usual, proposals on all aspects of overseas France will be considered. Please do not send proposals for papers that have already been presented or scheduled for presentation at other conferences, or that have already been published. The time limit for presenting papers will be 20 minutes, and the deadline for submitting papers to the session moderator is three weeks in advance of the start of the conference. The Society encourages scholars from all disciplines to submit proposals.
Individual paper proposals must include a 100-200 word summary with the title of the paper, name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, phone and fax numbers, and a brief curriculum vitae, all integrated into a single file, preferably in MS-Word format. Proposals for entire sessions or panels must contain the same information for each participant, as well as contact information and a brief c.v. for the moderator if you suggest one. (The program committee can help find moderators, if necessary.) There will be a limited number of AV-equipped rooms available so it is essential that you indicate your need for audiovisual equipment (and what kind) in your proposal.
Proposals should be sent by e-mail attachment simultaneously to all three members of the program committee: Sue Peabody (firstname.lastname@example.org), Jennifer Sessions (email@example.com), and Sarah Curtis (firstname.lastname@example.org). Individuals wishing to moderate a session should send a statement of interest, contact information, and a brief c.v. to these individuals as well. The deadline for proposals has been extended to November 1, 2008.
