The World History Association eagerly invites proposals from students, scholars, and teachers around the world on topics related to the scholarly and/or pedagogical aspects of the conference's themes:
* Panels (up to 3 panelists, one chair, and optionally, one discussant) – Individual papers, maximum of 20 minutes in length

* Roundtables (between 4 to 6 participants) –5 minute opening statements from participants and then conversational dialogue with the audience
*Workshops on specific teaching techniques or practices
* Mixed panels of K-12 teachers, students, university professors, and independent scholars examining cutting-edge scholarship and its classroom integration
* Panels devoted to research in progress (and potential for classroom integration)
* Sessions dealing with the current scholarship of "big issues" in world history (and potential for classroom integration)
* Proposals for poster displays and presentations
*Meet the Author sessions—an excellent opportunity for exchanges between authors and end-users of books and texts, explanations of methods, and suggestions for use
Prearranged panels are given priority in the program and receive earlier notification of acceptance. Individual papers will also be considered and, if accepted, are arranged into suitable panels by the Program Committee.
Each proposal should include: a maximum 250-word abstract for each paper, a one page curriculum vitae for each participant, and biographical details for use in the introduction by the chair. All papers should be presented in English (if this is a concern please indicate as much and the committee will take the matter under consideration). Please be thoughtful of A/V requests, while we should have ideal technological facilities, A/V is subject to failure, regardless of location. As always, handouts are welcome. Proposals must be submitted using the forms and guidelines available at http://www.thewha.org.
Information regarding key dates, registration, accommodations, keynote speakers, optional tours, and all related issues are posted, and regularly updated, on the WHA website: www.thewha.org.
