Anniversaries are a means to recall, celebrate, or commemorate significant milestones in history. Often forgotten is what came next. Examining the aftermath of momentous events in both the short and long-term enlarges historical understanding, whether viewed from a political, cultural, social, legislative, or other perspective. 2011 marks a number of anniversaries: 9/11, the Attica Prison Uprising, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, and the beginning of the Civil War, among others. For Researching New York 2011 we encourage submissions that not only explore how we remember, commemorate, and create meaning from these and other notable events in New York State history, but that also consider what came next.
Proposals are due by July 1, 2011. Complete panels, workshops, media presentations, or sessions are preferred- they will consider partial panels and individual submissions. For complete sessions please submit a one-page abstract of the session, a one page abstract for individual presentations, and a one-page curriculum vita for each participant. For individual submissions, include a one-page abstract and one-page vita. Submissions must include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Please submit electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. All proposals must detail any
anticipated audiovisual needs or time constraints. All conference participants are expected to register for the conference.
They also seek commentators for panels. If you would like to comment on a panel, please contact us at email@example.com, indicating your area of expertise, along with a one-page vita.
