This is the premier annual meeting of independent, academic and public historians, librarians and archivists, educators, museum professionals, and publishers in New York State.
Presentations may consider any aspect of New York State’s history, throughout any time period. Organizers are especially interested in proposals that highlight how partnerships between historical and cultural organizations can promote better public understanding of history.
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 is 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.
Proposal submissions should include a completed proposal form (found at www.nysha.org/cnysh), and a description of presentation, including a brief discussion of sources, methodology, and argument (300-word maximum).
Submit proposals by January 15, 2015 to email@example.com. Applicants will be notified of the Program Committee’s selections in mid-February.
