The organizers of the 11th Annual Researching New York Conference invite proposals for panels, papers, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, documentary, and media or multimedia presentations on any facet of New York State history —in any time period and from any perspective.
We also encourage submissions that mark the 2009 Hudson-Champlain Quadricentennial and speak to the conference theme: 400 years of Exploration: the Hudson-Champlain Corridor and Beyond. We especially invite proposals that explore and interpret not only the exploits of Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain and their contemporaries, but also the many kinds of exploration that have taken place in the ensuing 400 years of New York State’s rich and diverse history—-including consideration or how we remember, celebrate, interpret, and commemorate historical events.
The conference will be held at the University at Albany, Albany, New York, on November 19th and 20th, 2009. Researching New York brings together historians, researchers, archivists, museum curators, librarians, graduate students, teachers, Web and multimedia producers, and documentarians to share their work on New York State history.
We are also soliciting commentators for panels. If you would like to participate as a commentator, please send a note to email@example.com indicating your area of expertise, along with a one-page vita.
Proposals are due by June 28, 2009. Full panel proposals, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, film screenings and media presentations are preferred. Partial panels and individual submissions will be considered. For panels and full proposals, please submit a one-page abstract of the complete session, a one page abstract for each paper or presentation, and a one-page curriculum vita for each participant. Individual submissions should include a one-page abstract and one-page curriculum vita. Submissions must include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Please submit electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. All proposals must note any anticipated audio visual needs.
