Sixteenth Annual Institute Conference—Call for Papers
The Sixteenth Annual Institute Conference will convene at the University of Mississippi, in Oxford, June 10–13, 2010. The program committee, chaired by Sheila Skemp (University of Mississippi), seeks proposals focusing especially on slavery and constructions of race. But all proposals relevant to early American history broadly conceived are welcome. Priority will be given to submissions advancing innovative thinking based on fresh research.
We encourage panels of two or three papers addressing a coherent theme or theoretical problem, including a panel chair and commentators. We will also consider individual paper proposals. The committee reserves the right to make changes in the configuration of panels and to encourage the widest possible participation, will not approve more than one appearance by a scholar at the conference. Participants in the Fifteenth Annual Conference may not participate in the 2010 meeting in the same capacity, but 2009 paper presenters may comment and 2009 commentators may present. Assistance in the formation of panels is available at the Panel Locator, http://oieahc.wm.edu/conferences/panel/index.cfm.
All proposals must be submitted electronically no later than September 15, 2009. Panel proposals must be submitted by the organizer and include a one-paragraph description, one-page summaries of each paper, and a one-page c.v. Each c.v. should include mailing and email addresses and telephone numbers. All materials may be submitted online at the conference Web site, http://oieahc.wm.edu/conferences/annual/cfp/index.html—or by email to the Omohundro Institute’s webmaster, Kim Foley, at email@example.com. All submissions will be acknowledged by email. If you do not receive an acknowledgement, please resubmit or contact Kim Foley.
