The Constitutional Convention Research Group at the University of Georgia is seeking proposals for research papers on the American founding era to be presented this March in Athens, Georgia. This conference is funded by the National Science Foundation.
The year 2013 marks the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. To commemorate this event we are looking to bring together scholars from across disciplines such as economics, political science, and history that are interested in our nationís founding documents, as well as the people and events surrounding its inception. The goal of this conference is to take an interdisciplinary approach to consider if we can study this time more scientifically, and if so, how. Particular disciplines that may have an interest in these questions would be economics, history, political science, and law.
Anyone who is interested is encouraged to submit an abstract and C.V. to Anna Daily, the program coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Scholars from underrepresented institutions are particularly encouraged to apply. Abstracts are limited to 750 words or less, and should briefly describe the paper, methods, and significance of the research project. The deadline for submitting proposals is November 15, 2012.
Please send submissions, comments, or questions to Anna Daily, the program coordinator at email@example.com, or visit the conference website at http://225thanniversary.weebly.com.
