Call for Papers, 2015 Annual Meeting

The Ohio Academy of History seeks papers in all fields of history for the Spring 2015 Annual Meeting and Conference to be held at Ohio Northern University in Ada, Ohio, 27-28 March. We strongly encourage the submission of full panel sessions, with papers, comment, and chair, addressing any historical topic, area, or time period. Panels on world history or non-western history are especially appreciated. Proposals focusing on historiography, methodology, pedagogy, and public history are also encouraged. Individual papers may be proposed, but they are less likely to be accepted on their own due to the difficulty of combining them with others to form a panel with a coherent theme. In addition to traditional format sessions (scholarly papers with chair and commenter), the Ohio Academy welcomes non-traditional formats such as roundtables, discussion panels, or teaching-focused formats. We do not at this time solicit or accept undergraduate papers.

Submit proposals to Program Committee Chair, Mary Ann Heiss (ude.tnek@ssiehm), by 1 November 2014.

Proposals must include:

a paper title and 150-word abstract (and in the case of a complete panel, a 250-word description of the panel theme)
a one-page biography, resume, or curriculum vita
complete contact information (telephone/cell number and email/postal address)
Presenters must register for the conference by 1 March 2015 to be included in the program.
