Please note that The Florida Historical Society has established an Early Deadline for submission of papers to its 2013 Annual Meeting & Symposium. Session space is limited. Please submit proposals by OCTOBER 31, 2012. To commemorate Florida’s quincentennial and mark Juan Ponce de León’s 1513 voyage, the Society will hold its conference on board the cruise ship "Sensation," sailing round trip from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas. The conference program includes six keynote speakers, already selected, and additional panels by submission. Decisions about inclusion on the program will be made in early November. Cost for the cruise conference is just $500 per person, all expenses included, if payment is made by December 31, 2012. See the Society’s website for more information at: http://myfloridahistory.org/cruise. Take advantage of this unique chance to spend four days of travel with friends and colleagues who share your love of Florida history!
Submission Guidelines for Conference: Proposals on all topics in Florida history are welcome. The Society especially encourages proposals for round table panels or discussions that adhere to the conference theme and invite audience participation. Proposals to present individual papers also will be considered. As in the past, there will be facilities for multimedia presentations, including PowerPoint. Because of tight deadlines, no late submissions can be considered. To submit a proposal or for information about submissions, contact James Cusick at firstname.lastname@example.org (please put “FHS Paper” in your email heading) or call him at (352) 273-2778.
