Held in Conjunction with the Sixth Annual Alverno College World Music Festival, Global Union at Humboldt Park, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
16-18 September 2011, Alverno College, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
The Midwest World History Association, an affiliate of the World History Association, invites proposals from teachers and scholars of world history for workshops, panels, single papers, roundtables, poster presentations and other interactive presentations related to the pedagogical and scholarly aspects of the conference's theme. We hope that this conference will serve as a space for discussing
developing scholarship of world history, including world history teaching. It also will serve as a space for making connections between world history practitioners and students from institutions from K-12, higher education,and public history.
To underscore our conversational and inclusive focus, we particularly invite and welcome workshops of pre-circulated papers (accessible to registered participants online) and panels that cross the boundaries of disciplinary approaches and boundaries between various classrooms or public history
sites. We encourage proposals from undergraduate students as well as mixed panels that include students, K-12 teachers, college professors and independent scholars.
As a reflection of our host institution, Alverno College, which is well-known for its abilities-based curriculum, we also invite papers that consider the definition of and place of "skills" or "abilities" of world history classrooms or assessments.
Each proposal should include a 250 word abstract of the paper or workshop and a curriculum vitae. Where a complete panel or workshop is proposed, the convener should also include a 250 word abstract of the workshop/panel theme. We discourage papers that are longer than 20 minutes and encourage interactive and conversational presentations.
Proposals should be submitted in electronic format to Jodi Eastberg: firstname.lastname@example.org by June 15th. Presenters must register for the conference by August 15, 2011, to be included in the program.
