The eighth annual 2013 Virginia Forum will be held on the campus of Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia, March 21-13, 2013.
The Virginia Forum is interdisciplinary and welcomes proposals from scholars, teachers, students, and professionals in all fields. This year’s theme, “Writing Virginia,” particularly encourages submissions that analyze the ways in which Virginia has been represented, constructed, and recorded in non-fiction, fiction, other literary and historical forms, the visual arts, and historic and monumental sites.
We plan to offer sessions and workshops that draw from the full range of Virginia-focused research, including the humanities and sciences. We invite proposals about any aspect of Virginia life, society, history, and culture and from a variety of fields, including: economics, politics, geography, law, literature, history, politics, archaeology and anthropology, environmental studies, museum and library studies, preservation, and others.
Please visit the Virginia Forum web site for details on paper and panel proposals. Proposals are due September 30, 2012.
