CFP: Pennsylvania Historical Association Annual Meeting

October 19-21, 2006
Philadelphia, PA

Call for Paper and Panel Proposals

The Pennsylvania Historical Association invites proposals for individual papers, complete panels, roundtable discussions, and special sessions to be given at its 75th annual meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 19-21, 2006. This meeting is open to all scholars, researchers, educators, public historians, and professionals who share an interest in the history of Pennsylvania and the mid-Atlantic region from the founding years to the present. The PHA welcomes proposals on a wide range of themes and from numerous disciplines, including but not limited to history, material culture, educational strategies and theories, historic preservation, and museum studies. There is no overarching topic that will define this next conference, but given the focus of public and academic attention on the tercentenary of Benjamin Franklin's birth throughout the year, sessions relating to this topic are particularly welcome. Those whose proposals are accepted for the program must be members of the PHA.

Please submit 5 copies of all proposals to the program committee chair,
Cathy Matson
Department of History
University of Delaware
121 Munroe Hall
Newark, DE 19716.

Proposals should include title, description of paper or panel, a brief CV, and full contact

Questions may be directed to cmatson@udel.edu. Deadline for receipt of proposals is March 1, 2006; participants will be notified of the committee?s decision by May 1, 2006.
