Encountering Florida’s Past: Creating Public Memory of Spaniards and Indians
This volume of original essays will analyze and examine various public representations of Spanish-Indian encounters in Florida. Scholars wishing to have their work considered should send a one-page abstract and short c.v.to Jen Koslow or Andrew Frank . Abstracts are due April 15, 2010. First drafts of essays will be due August 2010. Essays will be 6500-8500 words including notes.
Essays can explore any manifestation of Florida’s Spanish-Indian past—including but not limited to historical markers, permanent museum exhibits, advertising, historical structures, reenactments, educational curriculum, etc. When appropriate, essays should try to address the ways in which public representations balance entertainment and education and the interconnections between myth and history
A one-day symposium is tentatively planned to bring contributors together.
