CALL FOR PAPERS
TWENTIETH ANNUAL WORLD HISTORY ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE
GLOBAL HISTORY CENTER, CAPITAL NORMAL UNIVERSITY
7-10 July 2011
China in World History
World History from the Center and the Periphery
The Twentieth Annual World History Association Conference begins with registration and a reception on Thursday. July 7th. Panel sessions and other conference-related activities commence Friday, July 8th, and continue to midday on Sunday, the 10th.
A limited number of rooms are available on-site at CNU’s Global History Conference Center and Hotel, and nearby five- and four-star hotels offer accommodations at reasonable rates. The WHA is currently negotiating with several travel agencies for pre-and post-conference optional tours for interested persons. Information regarding registration, accommodations, the keynote speakers, optional pre- and post-conference tours, visas and other key information for first-time travelers to China, as well as panel and paper proposal forms will begin appearing on the WHA website, www.thewha.org, in late August 2010.
The World History Association invites proposals from scholars and teachers from around the world for 90-minute panels (up to 3 panelists, one chair, and one discussant), single papers, and roundtables (between 4 to 5 participants) on topics related to the scholarly and/or pedagogical aspects of the conference's themes, “China in World History” and “World History from the Center and the Periphery.” The Program Committee encourages mixed panels of K-12 teachers, university professors, and independent scholars in which cutting-edge scholarship is presented and then discussed in terms of how it might be introduced into the classroom, as well as panels devoted to research in progress and sessions dealing with the current scholarship of “big issues” in world history and how these issues might be brought to the classroom. The committee also invites proposals for sessions in which all papers and commentary have been posted on the WHA website in advance and the entire session is devoted to open discussion of the issues raised.
Please note that the particular nature of preparing a conference in China means that an early submission deadline must be maintained, and thus priority will be given to full panel submissions. However, individual papers will be considered, and if accepted will be placed into panels put together by the Program Committee. Papers and proposed panels that do not fit into the conference themes will be considered and accepted, as space allows.
Each proposal must include: a 250-word abstract of each paper, a one-page curriculum vitae for each participant, and a statement noting how each paper makes an original contribution to scholarship or pedagogy. Audio-visual support is exceedingly costly. Please make A/V requests only if absolutely necessary. A/V requests must be made at the time of the proposal submission. On-site requests cannot be honored. As always, handouts are welcome. Proposals must be submitted using the forms and guidelines available at www.thewha.org
Guidelines for panel organizers, paper presenters, commentators, and chairs are posted at http://www. thewha.org and should be read with care and followed. Please note the strict 20-minute time limit for paper presentations.
DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: 15 December 2010. No proposal will be accepted after the deadline. Presenters must register for the conference by 1 March 2011 to be included in the program.
