Proposals are now being sought for the 2013 Conference on New York State History to be held at the New York State Historical Association in Cooperstown on June 6-8, 2013. Presentations may consider any aspect of New York State’s History.
To mark the Civil War sesquicentennial, the organizing committee is also soliciting proposals for one set of sessions that will examine aspects of the New York City draft riots of July 1863. Guidelines and proposal forms are available at www.nysha.org/cnysh .
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.
All proposals must be received by January 7, 2013. Email proposals to [email protected].
The New York State Historical Association sponsors the Conference along with the New York State Archives Partnership Trust, with the support of the New York Council for the Humanities.
