CALL FOR PAPERS
43rd ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE
ASSOCIATION FOR SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE HISTORICAL STUDIES
TUFTS UNIVERSITY, MEDFORD, MA (BOSTON)
MARCH 22-25, 2012
The 43rd Annual Conference of the ASPHS will take place on March 22-25, 2012 at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. The ASPHS invites session proposals for panels and/or individual presentations on any aspect of Iberian history. The typical panel will include three papers, a chair, and commentator. We welcome proposals for roundtable discussions of a particular work or theme. Since 2012 is the bicentennial of the Constitution of Cádiz, we especially encourage proposals for sessions that address that topic. Proposals should include a 200-word abstract for each paper and a one-page curriculum vitae for each participant, including chairs and commentators. Please include each participant's name, e-mail, mail address, and telephone number, along with any requests for audio/visual equipment or other special requirements.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, November 18, 2011. Participants in the conference must be members of the ASPHS. Students presenting a paper will receive a free membership for their first year, but must still submit the necessary paperwork. Please direct questions about membership to David Ortiz, Jr. (email@example.com) or see the website for membership information: http://asphs.net/membership.html
Please submit proposals by email to David Messenger, Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
