The University of South Dakota Department of History is proud to host the 2014 NGPHC (8-11 October 2014). The Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn City Centre in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. More information can be found at: http://www.ngphc2014.org/. We encourage faculty, government, graduate student, and independent historians to submit proposals for papers or sessions. We seek papers that explore the origins and outcomes of historical events and ideas from a variety of perspectives, including but not limited to cultural, diplomatic, economic, military, political, and social. The Conference theme, in conjunction with the centennial of the beginning of World War I, is "The War to End all Wars: A Century of Consequences." Papers that address the impact of the Great War on the Northern Great Plains are especially encouraged, but papers and sessions that do not address the theme are also welcome. The Women’s History Interest group will sponsor a luncheon on Thursday and the Society for Military History will sponsor a luncheon on Friday. The Thursday reception will be held at the Old Courthouse Museum Courtroom and Law Library from 5-8 pm. The Friday evening banquet will feature Dr. Michael Neiberg. Neiberg is Professor of History in the Department of National Security and Strategy at the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and is the author of numerous books on World War I, including his most recent, Dance of the Furies: Europe and the Outbreak of World War I (Harvard, 2011). Please send a one-page paper proposal and c.v. or, for a full session proposal, send a one-page session proposal, and a one-page abstract for each paper and c.v.s for all participants to: Steven.Bucklin@usd.edu by 1 April 2014.
