2012 OAH/NCPH Annual Meeting Call for Presentations
Frontiers of Capitalism and Democracy
Frontier Airlines Center
Thursday, April 19 to Sunday, April 22, 2012
OAH and NCPH will begin accepting proposals for the 2012 meeting on October 1, 2010.
Meeting in Milwaukee, a shoreline city where immigrant leaders produced innovative public policies during the industrial era, and during the centennial of two of the most profound third-party electoral challenges in American history, we welcome panels that address the shaping role of evolving market systems, class relations, and migrations over the long chronological sweep of American history, or that explore the frontiers of social imagination and/or territorial encounters that have altered understandings of other peoples and traditions. While we invite sessions on all aspects of U.S. history, we are especially eager to see those that stimulate reflection on tensions and/or interchanges between capitalism and democracy at “frontier” moments in the past.
The Program Committee is keen to encourage a wide variety of forms of conversation. Please feel free to submit such non-traditional proposals as poster-sessions; roundtables that home in on significant debates in sub-fields; discussions around a single artifact or text; serial panels organized around a thematic thread that will run through the conference; working groups that tackle a common professional issue or challenge (see guidelines on the NCPH website, www.ncph.org); or workshops that develop professional skills in the documentation or interpretation of history. Teaching sessions are also welcome, particularly those involving the audience as active participants or those that reflect collaborative partnerships and/or conversations among teachers, public historians, research scholars and history educators at all levels and in varied settings.
We seek a program that includes the full diversity of the OAH and NCPH membership, so wherever possible proposals should include presenters of both sexes, members of racial and ethnic minorities, and historians who practice their craft in a wide variety of venues, including community colleges and pre-collegiate classrooms, consulting firms, museums, historical societies, and the National Park Service. We prefer to receive proposals for complete sessions, but will consider individual papers as well.
The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, February 1, 2011. More information is available at http://meetings.oah.org.
