Research in modern American conservatism has grown exponentially in both size and complexity in recent years. As evidenced by the rich trove of panels at the 2010 Organization of American Historians annual meeting, scholars are doing innovative research that challenges existing hierarchies. If you are taking this burgeoning field in exciting new directions, we are interested in hearing from you. We are soliciting proposals for an edited volume on conservatism in the 1960s that will represent original research and new interpretive challenges to the existing scholarship in the field. Themes for the collection may include race, religion, anticommunism, electoral politics, the “Far Right,” and intellectual influences on the conservative movement. We are especially interested in scholarly work that incorporates international context and/or transnational perspectives. Scholarship that explores transitions in conservatism during this decade is also encouraged. Recent PhDs and senior scholars embarking on new scholarship are especially welcomed.
Please submit a 500-word proposal and CV to Laura Gifford (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dan Williams (email@example.com) by July 31, 2010. Those whose proposals are accepted will be notified by early September, with article drafts of approximately 6,000 words (20-25 pages) due in March 2011.
