Call for contributions : The Anthropocene and material culture 18 octobre 2017

27th Annual World History Association Conference
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 21-23 June 2018

Call for contributions : The Anthropocene and material culture
DEADLINE: 30 NOVEMBER 2017

The World History Association and the Midwest World History Association invite proposals from scholars, teachers, and graduate students around the world on topics related to the conference’s themes, the Anthropocene and Material Culture, and on topics of general interest to world historians. The WHA promotes interdisciplinary conversations about scholarship and teaching, so work in anthropology, political science, literature, art, the natural sciences, and other fields is welcomed and encouraged. Proposals may take several forms:
    •    Organized panels of generally three panelists, one chair, and optionally, one discussant
    •    Organized round tables with four to six participants, which involve five-minute opening statements from participants and then conversational dialogue with the audience
    •    Workshops on specific teaching or research techniques or practices
    •    Individual papers, maximum of 15-20 minutes in length
    •    Meet-the-author sessions, in which the authors of recently-published books discuss their approach and methods, and engage in exchange with possible endusers

Organized panels/roundtables/workshops are given priority in the program and receive earlier notification of acceptance. If accepted, individual papers will be arranged into suitable panels by the Program Committee, but these will receive later notice of acceptance.

More detailed guidelines, and the portal for submitting panels and papers may be found at: http://www.thewha.org. Please address any questions to: info@thewha.org.
