For the annual Researching NY Conference, we invite proposals for panels, papers, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, and documentary and multimedia presentations on any aspect of New York State or related history—in any time period and from any perspective. The conference brings together historians, archivists, graduate students, public historians, documentarians, and multimedia producers, to share their work on New York State history.
Nature, science, and technology are reflected in the fabric of the State's economy, public policy, and culture--and in the lives of its citizens. Environmental forces and human histories have long been intertwined. For 2012, we especially encourage submissions that call attention to historic ways of knowing and understanding the environment and the broader social, cultural, and political implications of technological and environmental transformations.
Proposal deadline is July 1, 2012. Complete panels, workshops, media presentations, or sessions are preferred; partial panels and individual submissions will be considered. For complete sessions please submit a one-page abstract of the complete session and a one-page abstract and curriculum vita for each individual participant. For individual submissions, submit a one-page abstract and one-page curriculum vita. Submissions must include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Submit electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. All proposals must detail any anticipated audiovisual needs or time constraints at the time of submission.
We also seek commentators for panels. Please indicate your interest by contacting us at email@example.com, noting your area of expertise and including a one-page vita.
