The fifth annual Virginia Forum will meet at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, located in Hampton Roads, Virginia, on April 15-17, 2010. It will include a visit to the Mariners’ Museum, adjacent to the campus. The Virginia Forum offers an opportunity for exchanges of ideas among scholars, archivists, librarians, museum curators, K-12 teachers, and all those interested in Virginia history and culture.
The Virginia Forum invites proposals for presentations on all topics in Virginia history and culture, but the Hampton Roads area’s relationship to the Atlantic Ocean, Chesapeake Bay, and other waterways offers a special opportunity to reflect on maritime history and culture. Proposals from graduate and undergraduate students conducting research in Virginia history are encouraged.
The Virginia Forum invites proposals for individual papers or complete panel sessions, roundtable discussions, workshops, poster sessions, or electronic/multimedia presentations. Proposals for individual papers, posters or electronic presentations should be no more than one page, single-spaced in standard font. The proposal should include a title, the name of the participant(s) and his/her affiliation, and an abstract of the presentation that discusses the sources used and the significance of the topic presented. Proposals for complete panel sessions, workshops, etc. should include a one-page description of the overall session, as well as a separate, one-page description for each individual presentation in the session. Additional information is available online at www.virginiaforum.org.
E-mail proposals, along with a one-page vita for each of the presenters, to Deborah A Lee, independent scholar and chair of the 2010 Program Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
