2013 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Ethnohistory
WATER WAYS: The Ethnohistories of People and Water
September 11-15, 2013
Hotel Monteleone, New Orleans
This year’s conference theme reflects the geography of New Orleans situated at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi River, one of the largest waterways on the continent. Just as the history of New Orleans has been shaped by its close proximity to water, this year’s meeting focuses on the ethnohistories of people and water–water as mythical and magical element, water as corridors of connection, water as sites of human history, water as necessity, water as human rights, water as resource, water as disaster, water as blessing, and so on. We encourage panel and paper proposals that focus on some aspect of the history of people and water, although any panel or paper on any ethnohistorical topic will be considered.
Complete panel proposals with presenters, chair, and discussant (s) are preferred, but individual paper proposals are also accepted. The firm deadline for applications is APRIL 19, 2013. Please note the earlier than usual date of the conference as well as the earlier than usual deadline for the submission of proposals and abstracts. Applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals by July 4, 2013.
One can register and submit abstracts for individual papers and panels online and pay through PayPal on the website of the American Society for Ethnohistory (ASE): http://www.ethnohistory.org/. One must be a member of ASE to present. It is not necessary to register for the conference in order to have a paper or panel accepted. Once papers and panels are accepted, however, participants must register as an ASE member.
