Organizers are now accepting proposals for single papers and panels. Individuals are also encouraged to submit new films, walking tours, author talks, and practical advice on research and preservation.
All topics related to Washington, D.C.s local history are welcome, as are topics on federal government history or the history of the nearby Northern Virginia and Maryland suburbs, if they clearly relate to the history of local life. Papers and presentations exploring Abraham Lincoln and nineteenth-century Washington are particularly encouraged.
