We are compiling a proposal for the June 4-7, 2014 Policy History Conference in Columbus, Ohio and seek a third presenter for a panel on the following theme:
The tumultuous politics of the late 1960s and early 1970s produced considerable soul-searching and activism among progressive Republicans, moderate Democrats and others near the ideological center -- yet these activities have received little attention by scholars focused upon radical politics and/or the idealism-crushing events of the Watergate era. The political polarization that popular history has privileged did exist, but only within a broader framework of individuals and groups dedicated to seeking alternative -- and often cross-partisan -- paths through the tumult of these years. This panel seeks to restore the Watergate era's complexity through examination of third party and/or alternative party activism during the long 1960s.
Might your research fit this theme? Send us an email with a brief abstract of your paper proposal. Proposal deadline is December 2, but we plan to finalize the proposal well before then. For more information on the PCH, visit this site: http://www.politicalhistory.org/Call%20for%20Papers.html.
