The 2009 Mid-Atlantic World History Association Program Committee invites proposals for full panels, single papers, and roundtables on topics related to the scholarly and/or pedagogical aspects of this year’s conference theme, “Time and How it Frames Our World” and the general theme of World History.
We welcome submissions on any subject, period or area from independent scholars as well as teachers/scholars from universities, colleges, secondary schools, publishers and other related institutions.
Submission deadline: August 15, 2009
In addition to other topics not related to the theme, possible topics could include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Eventful years? 1492, 1688, 1968, 1989 etc.
- The long year or the short year, what measures do we use to define a year, much like a century
- The repeating year, events that appear to repeat with regularity
- Remembering time, commemoration of a year, a series of dates, or other anniversaries
- Using the year as a format for teaching
- Time and how its involvement changes institutions, cultures, environments, etc.
- Technology and art as a measure of time and change
Each paper, panel, or roundtable proposal must include a title and a brief (300 words or less) description of the topic. Sessions are ninety (90) minutes long. Ideally, panels will consist of three presenters, who will be allotted no more than 20 minutes each, leaving time for questions. Panels will have maximum of four presenters, roundtables may have five panelists, but each will be limited to a 10-minute initial statement.
