CALL FOR PAPERS, ORGANIZED SESSIONS, FILMS, AND TOURS - 41ST ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON D.C. HISTORICAL STUDIES
Washington, D.C., November 20-23, 2014
Making New Washingtons: Historical Consciousness in a Transforming City
Proposals are now being reviewed for individual papers, organized panels, new films, walking tours, author talks on new books, and practical workshops on research or material preservation. All topics related to the history of metropolitan Washington, D.C., including nearby Maryland and Virginia, as well as the federal government, are welcome. Don’t miss this opportunity to reach the conference audience of scholars, students, and interested members of the public eager for this lively consideration of all things D.C.
The theme for the 41st Annual Conference is “Making New Washingtons: Historical Consciousness in a Transforming City.” At this time of great change and new development, historians are invited to consider the present in the context of earlier periods of ferment and dramatic change, including, but not limited to, regrouping after the burning of Washington 200 years ago, the “New Washington” era of Reconstruction following the Civil War, the Great Migration following World War I, and the waves of immigration in the second half of the 20th century. Presentations that compare D.C. to other urban centers are especially relevant and encouraged.
The conference theme is not meant to be exclusive. Submissions based on all new research on D.C. history topics are welcome.
