We invite you to take part in the Culture panels of the 36th annual meeting of the Social Science History Association, November 17-20, 2011, in Boston. For more information on the meeting as well as the call for proposals, please refer to the SSHA website: www.ssha.org.
The deadline for paper and/or panel submissions is February 15, 2011.
The members of the Social Science History Association share a common interest in interdisciplinary and systematic approaches to historical research, and many of us find the SSHA one of the most stimulating conferences that we attend. The thematic topic of the 2011 annual meeting is “Generation to Generation” – a theme that works very well with the research interests of many of the scholars involved in the Culture network.
While we welcome panels and papers on any topic of interest to scholars of Culture and History, we are particularly soliciting papers on the following themes, drawn from member suggestions:
-The Revival of “Culture of Poverty” Arguments
-Journalism and Generations
-College Student Culture
-Theories of Change and Reproduction
The Culture network will be able to host at least seven panels in 2011 and will also be able to place additional papers through co-sponsorship with other networks (for example, with History/Methods, Politics, Macro-Historical Change, State-Society, Historical Geography, Race, Urban, etc.).
The SSHA requests that submissions be made by means of its web conference management system. Paper title, brief abstract, and contact information should be submitted on the site www.ssha.org, where the general SSHA 2011 call for papers is also available. (If you haven’t used the system previously you will need to create an account, which is a very simple process.) Here is the direct link for submissions: http://conference.ssha.org/
The online system is now accepting submissions. If you have any questions, please contact any of the Culture co-chairs (Stefan Bargheer firstname.lastname@example.org; Leah Gordon email@example.com; or Victoria Johnson firstname.lastname@example.org).
NOTE: There is an SSHA rule concerning book sessions. For abook session to proceed, the author (or at least one of multiple authors) MUST be present. Proposals for book sessions should only be submitted if there is high confidence that the author will be able to travel to the conference.
SSHA has set up a mechanism for networks to share papers, so evenif you have a solo paper, send the idea along. It is possible and useful to identify a paper not only by the Culture network, but also by some other co-sponsoring networks. Co-sponsored panels and papers are encouraged by the SSHA Program Committee asa means of broadening the visibility of the various networks.
Stefan Bargheer, Leah Gordon, and Victoria Johnson
