Papers on the Spanish Empire in North America, specifically the Interior Provinces or that part of New Spain that is now the United States. Individual papers accepted but full panels are preferred. Panels may be either two papers with a chair and commenter, three papers with chair, or a round table of four to five presenters with one acting also as chair. Topics pertaining to Spanish-era Texas will be given preference.
A complete session proposal includes the following: a) session title; b) complete name, address, phone number, a one-page vita, and institutional affiliation (or hometown, in the case of lay historians) of the session chairman, paper presenters (either two or three), and commentator (for sessions with two paper presenters); c) titles of the two or three individual papers; and d) a brief summary of each paper. Each complete session is strictly limited to seventy-five minutes. To allow time for introductions and questions, each presentation in three-paper sessions should not exceed twenty minutes (about ten typewritten pages) and in two-paper sessions each should be limited to twenty-five minutes (about twelve pages).
