The Pacific Coast Branch of the
American Historical Association Annual Meeting
12-14 August 2010
Santa Clara, California
Moving beyond National, Cultural, and Disciplinary Boundaries
The Program Committee for the 2010 Pacific Coast Branch-American Historical Association (PCB-AHA) annual meeting invites proposals for panels and papers on all historical themes and time periods but with special consideration for those fitting the theme “Moving beyond National, Cultural, and Disciplinary Boundaries.” Interdisciplinary panels and presentations in non-traditional formats (films, posters, roundtables, workshops) are also welcomed, as are proposals from graduate students.
We encourage proposals that interrogate boundaries in any of their forms: national, racial, gendered, cultural, religious, and social. In addition, we welcome proposals employing interdisciplinary methods and perspectives. Panels that focus on boundary maintenance (rather than transcending boundaries) or analyze construction of boundaries also fit this theme. We encourage presentations comparing regions, nations, eras, and subfields of history, as well as panels on pedagogical issues.
All submissions should be sent by email, with attachments in Word or RTF; please write “Proposed PCB Panel (or Paper)” in the subject line.
When submitting a panel proposal,
• include an abstract that outlines the panel’s theme
• designate one panelist as contact person
• indicate audio/visual needs.
Each paper proposal, whether individual or part of a panel, should include, for each participant:
• one-page abstract
• audio/visual needs
• one-page c.v.
• address, phone number, and email.
The Program Committee assumes all members of proposed panels have agreed to participate. The deadline for submissions is Friday, 15 January 2010.
Please email submissions to:
