The organizers of the 12th annual Researching New York Conference invite proposals for panels, papers, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, and documentary and multimedia presentations on any facet of New York State history -in any time period and from any perspective. The conference will be held at the University at Albany on November 18th and 19th, 2010.
Researching New York brings together historians, archivists, museum curators, graduate students, teachers, multimedia producers, and documentarians to share their work on New York State history. Presentations that highlight the vast resources available to researchers, as well as scholarship drawn from those resources, are encouraged.
For Researching New York 2010, we especially invite proposals that examine and explore the myriad ways that technology has changed how we “do” history from research to preservation, from classroom teaching to museum exhibits, from on-site to virtual audiences and so much more.
Proposals are due by June 28, 2010. Complete session proposals, workshops, roundtables, film screenings, and media presentations are preferred. Partial panels and individual submissions will be considered. For panels and full proposals, please submit a one-page abstract of the complete session, a one page abstract for each paper or presentation, and a one-page curriculum vita for each participant. Individual submissions should include a one-page abstract and one-page curriculum vita. Submissions must include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Please submit electronically to [email protected] All proposals must detail any anticipated audio visual needs.
The organizers are also soliciting commentators for panels. If you would like to participate as a commentator, Please send a note to [email protected] indicating your area of expertise, along with a one-page vita.
