The event is one of two major annual conferences for New York’s history community, including academic and public historians, librarians and archivists, educators, museum professionals, and publishers in New York State.
Presentations may consider any aspect of New York State’s history, throughout any time period. The organizers are especially interested in proposals that highlight how partnerships between historical and cultural organizations can promote better public understanding of history.
Presentation formats may include:
• Presentation Sessions: Chair and 3 presenters, 75 minutes
• Panel/Roundtable discussion sessions: Chair/Moderator and 3-4 panelists, 75 minutes
• Workshops and practical sessions: workshops 3–5 hours, practical sessions 75 minutes
• Individual presentations: 25 minutes
Preference will be given to full session proposals. Presenters are encouraged to take a dynamic approach, including the use of visual and audio aids, audience participation, and discussions, rather than solely reading a paper.
Proposal submissions should include a description of presentation, including a brief discussion of sources, methodology, and argument (300-word maximum), along with the completed proposal form, found at www.nysha.org/cnysh
Submit proposals by January 15, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will be notified of the Program Committee’s selections in January.
