Call for Papers/Proposals

2019 Call for Proposals Organization of American Historians

  • Opening/Closing Dates: Submissions will be accepted between December 3, 2018 and February 1, 2019
  • The Program Committee welcomes proposals from all areas and eras of early American and U.S. history, broadly conceived. While (in)equalities might characterize virtually every subject that historians study and teach, the committee does not expect all papers and sessions to adhere to the conference theme. The OAH meeting is a site for wide-ranging conversation, a place to talk across subfields, to experiment with methods, topics, and presentation, and especially to learn from one another. The committee encourages proposals for panels, workshops, and roundtables that employ new media and methodologies, transcend traditional disciplinary and geographic boundaries, and showcase work that reaches out to a broader public. OAH welcomes teaching sessions, particularly those that involve the audience as active participants.
