2012 OAH Annual Meeting – “Profiting from the Past” (seeking panelist and chair)
From heritage tourism sites that generate millions of dollars in revenue each year, to copyright laws that increasingly constrain scholars hoping to create and share narratives of the past, what role does profit (as well as notions of cultural and intellectual “property”) have in which stories are told and which memories preserved?
Does your scholarship explore how and where historical production and commercial culture overlap? If so, please consider participating in this OAH panel on how capitalism affects the production and reception of historical narratives. The session organizer is open to papers that take on these questions from a variety of perspectives (various time periods, communities, etc.) and is looking for panelists who are interested in engaging with these questions in an accessible and engaging manner.
Please send your CV and paper abstract by January 24th to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for the panel.
