SHCY Co-sponsorship at 2014 AHA Annual Meeting

Call for proposals: SHCY Co-sponsorship at 2014 AHA Annual Meeting

As an official American Historical Association affiliate, the Society for the History of Childhood and Youth can co-sponsor sessions at the AHA’s annual meetings. SHCY is pleased to have co-sponsored (with the AHA) three sessions at this year’s meeting, and to have been the single sponsor of a fourth panel. SHCY’s Outreach Committee is soliciting full panel proposals for possible co-sponsorship at the 2014 AHA meeting in Washington D.C. Co-sponsored proposals must meet the AHA guidelines and be accepted by the AHA program committee. (Co-sponsorship does not guarantee acceptance by the AHA.) The AHA call for papers can be found here: http://www.historians.org/perspectives/issues/2012/1209/Call-for-Proposals-for-the-128th-Annual-Meeting.cfm

We are especially interested (as is the AHA) in panels and roundtables that are not restricted to a narrow geographic focus and that include presenters from a range of institutions and points in their careers. All presenters, including chairs and commentators, must be members of SHCY.

Please send full panel proposals by Friday January 25, 2013 to all of the following SHCY Outreach Committee Members:

Rebecca de Schweinitz rld@byu.edu
James Marten james.marten@marquette.edu
David Pomfret pomfretd@HKUCC.HKU.HK
Shurlee Swain Shurlee.Swain@acu.edu.au
Adriana Benzaquen Adriana.Benzaquen@msvu.ca

We will notify panel organizers by Feb. 8 if their panel has been accepted by SHCY for co-sponsorship. (The AHA submission deadline is Feb. 15.)

Panels that SHCY accepts for co-sponsorship but are ultimately not accepted by the AHA program committee will be considered for single sponsorship at the 2014 AHA conference.
