DEADLINE May 15, 2009. Call for Papers: The History of American Rights
San Francisco State University will host a conference exploring rights in American history. The conference will meet on the campus of San Francisco State University on September 17 and 18, 2009. Rights, both individual and collective, have long been a theme in American history, often seen in conflict with governmental power. We welcome papers on assertions of rights by insurgent groups, resistance to rights claims, and governmental efforts to suppress or promote rights. Our goal is to examine the place the history of rights occupies within the larger American history narrative.
We invite proposals from graduate students and established scholars on topics dealing with the history of rights--broadly defined--covering all time periods.
The deadline for submission of proposals, consisting of an abstract(s) and a one-page c.v. is May 15, 2009. Complete panels or individual paper proposals will be considered. Send your proposal to Christopher Waldrep, Department of History, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, California 94132.
Alternatively, you can send your proposal as an e-mail attachment to
