2016 IAH Annual Meeting Call for Papers

Call for Proposals
Indiana Association of Historians,36th Annual Meeting:
“1816 and All That:Memory,Commemoration,History”
February 19-20,2016,Indiana University,Bloomington

The Indiana Association of Historians (IAH) invites paper and panel proposals for its 2016 annual meeting.

“Memory,Commemoration,History”
How do historians mediate the difficult intersections where events,documents,memories,and commemoration converge on the experience of everyday life? Such questions—especially pressing to the public on the occasion of historical anniversaries such as Indiana’s upcoming statehood bicentennial—stay with the historian no matter what the season.
For its 2016 meeting,the Indiana Association of Historians invites paper and session proposals that deal reflectively with the historian’s role in recalling and explaining the past. In addition to topics relevant to ongoing commemorations (including,in addition to the Indiana bicentennial,the World War I centennial,the Reconstruction sesquicentennial,a half century since the beginning of the Vietnam War,etc.),we welcome creative presentations on all historical subjects.
Academic,public,and independent historians,as well as graduate students and K-12 educators,are eligible to present papers. (Undergraduate papers will not be considered.) All presenters must be present and register for the conference.
