SHCY Sponsored Sessions at AHA 2015

The Society for the History of Children and Youth Outreach Committee is soliciting proposals from SHCY members who would like to participate in a single-sponsored session at the American Historical Association Annual Conference, to be held in New York City, January 2-5, 2015. We are interested in possibly putting together two sessions. One would be a “state-of-the-field” session, and the other would focus on teaching the history of children and youth, and/or integrating children’s history into survey, methods, and education classes.

Please send a brief (500 words or less) proposal for your contribution to one of these panels, along with a one-page CV to Rebecca de Schweinitz ( by May 2, 2014. (Single-sponsored sessions appear on the regular AHA program and are held at the conference venue. Members who will be participating in other sessions at AHA are not eligible.)
