American Society for Ethnohistory
Sept 30-Oct 3, in New Orleans
This year’s conference, theme builds on the history of New Orleans as a nexus between North America, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. Just as New Orleans has combined these worlds into a cross-cultural city, this year’s meeting focuses on the ethnohistorical ties throughout the Americas and seeks to bring these seemingly distinct scholarly worlds together in collaborative fashion. We encourage panel and paper proposals that combine work being done in more than one geographical area and/or that seek to draw comparisons between ethnohistorical research and methodology developed in diverse American settings, although any panel or paper on an ethnohistorical topic will be considered.
Complete panel proposals with presenters, chair, and commenter are preferred, but individual paper proposals are also accepted. The firm deadline for applications is May 15, 2009. Please note the earlier than usual date of the conference as well as the earlier than usual deadline for the submission of proposals and abstracts. Applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals by July 15, 2009.
The necessary forms for submission are available on the website of the American Society for Ethnohistory (ASE): http://www.ethnohistory.org/.
