CFProposals: AHA 2016

The SHCY Outreach Committee is accepting proposals for possible sessions at the next American Historical Association conference (to be held in Atlanta, GA, Jan. 7-10, 2016). As an AHA Affiliate, SHCY is able to sponsor sessions at the organization’s annual conference. Affiliate-sponsored sessions convene at the regular conference venues and appear on the AHA program.​ We are especially interested in sponsoring sessions that examine the history of childhood and youth across a global landscape, sessions that address the state of the field, and sessions that focus on teaching the history of children and youth in both national and world survey courses. All proposed panelists need to be members of SHCY. Members of SHCY outside the United States are welcome to participate in SHCY-sponsored AHA sessions.

Please submit proposals by May 1, 2015 to Rebecca de Schweinitz at

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.)
