Sent: Monday, September 23, 2013 Subject: CFP: Indiana Association of Historians annual meeting 2014 IAH Annual Meeting "Conflict and Transformation" Call for Papers The Indiana Association of Historians 34th Annual Meeting 8 March 2014 Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana The year 2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War I and the fiftieth anniversary of the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964. Both of these transformative events represented the culmination of powerful social, political and cultural trends, while they simultaneously initiated processes of change (and renewed conflict) whose impact continues to be felt around the globe. In recognition of the worldwide significance of these two anniversaries, the Indiana Association of Historians invites paper and panel proposals for its 34th annual meeting, to be held at Purdue University on March 8, 2014. Lawrence Sondhaus, Professor of History, University of Indianapolis, will provide the keynote address. The author of many influential works on the Austro-Hungarian military and the Great War, his recent comprehensive history of that conflict, World War One: The Global Revolution, offers an exciting new critique of the complex course and manifold, continuing consequences of that struggle. While papers and panels from all fields and related to all topics of history are welcomed, the program committee is particularly interested in those proposals related to conflict and transformation, broadly defined. Topics related to the theme might include: The impact of both the war and the Civil Rights movement on global notions of freedom and conflict resolution; the political background and political/economic impact of the Great War and/or the African-American struggle for freedom; contested historical interpretations of both these transformative episodes; and many others. The program committee encourages paper and panel proposals from scholars in all fields, from graduate students, and proposals focused on K-12 history education and public history. Papers (approximately 2500 words) may present original research, scholarly synthesis of existing literature, or participant experience. Panels will consist of two or three papers, with comment. To propose a panel and/or session, e-mail a one-page proposal for each presentation and a one-page c.v. for each participant. The deadline for proposals is 13 December 2013. Questions and proposals should be submitted to the Program Committee Co-Chairs at the Purdue University Department of History: Professor Nancy Gabin Professor Michael Morrison firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> --
