Horizons of Change: The Unexpected, Unknown, and Unforgettable
2011 Annual Meeting
Pacific Coast Branch, American Historical Association
August 11 - 13, 2011
The Program Committee for the 2011 Pacific Coast Branch-American Historical Association (PCB-AHA) annual meeting invites proposals for panels and papers on all historical subjects and time periods but with special consideration for those that fit the theme, Horizons of Change: The Unexpected, Unknown, and Unforgettable. This theme is meant to encourage innovative and imaginative perspectives and interpretations, focusing on transformative and meaningful events, movements, issues, and individuals related to recent PCB program areas of interest such as race, gender, borders, and regions; but also to far-reaching fields such as colonialism, U.S. influence, globalism, and historiography. We hope to provide a forum for new research, new understanding, new methodology, and new teaching and learning approaches.
We welcome submissions for panels, roundtable discussions, workshops, and individual papers. We also particularly welcome panels composed of or including graduate students. Graduate student participants are eligible to apply for Presidents’ Graduate Student Travel Awards (see the Pacific Coast Branch website at: http://pcb.cgu.edu/prizes.htm for additional details). All submissions should be sent by email, with attachments in Word or RTF; please write “Proposed PCB Session (or Paper)” in the subject line.
When submitting a panel proposal:
• include an abstract that outlines the panel’s theme
• designate one panelist as contact person
• indicate audio/visual needs.
Each paper proposal, whether individual or part of a panel, should include for each participant:
• one-page abstract
• audio/visual needs
• one-page c.v.
• address, phone number, and email
The Program Committee assumes all members of proposed panels have agreed to participate.
The deadline for submissions is Monday, November 15, 2010.
Please email submissions to:
Western Washington University
University of California Riverside
