The program committee is now calling for proposals for sessions and papers to be presented at the Texas State Historical Association’s 118th Annual Meeting, March 6-8, 2014, in San Antonio.
A complete session proposal includes the following:
a) session title;
b) complete name, address, phone number, email, and institutional affiliation (or hometown, in the case of lay historians) of the session chairman, paper presenters (either two or three), and commentator (for sessions with two paper presenters);
c) a one-page vita for each participant;
c) titles of the two or three individual papers; and
d) a brief summary of each paper (each one page max).
Each complete session is strictly limited to 75 minutes. In a three-paper session, each presentation should not exceed twenty minutes (about ten typewritten pages). In a two-paper session, each presentation should be limited to twenty-five minutes (about twelve pages) to allow time for introductions and questions. Papers presented should not have been delivered at a scholarly meeting or published prior to the 2014 Texas State Historical Association meeting. There are, of course, no objections to the papers being given again or published after the meeting.
Each session will have four participants: chair, two paper presenters, and either a third presenter or a commentator(not both). Individuals who are to present papers at the 2014 meeting will be required to have a copy of their paper and a one-page vita in the hands of their session chairman and session commentator (in two-paper sessions) by January prior to the meeting. Individuals who participate in the TSHA’s annual programs may present a paper once every three years or serve as a commentator once every two years. Session chairs may repeat annually, although the committee will make every effort to avoid repetition. As much as possible, participants in a given session should be from different institutions. Historians from outside Texas, but doing work in Texas-related studies, are encouraged to participate.
