Ohio Academy of Historians Annual Conference
The Ohio Academy of History seeks papers in all fields of history for its annual conference to be held at The Ohio State University March 31-April 1, 2017. Papers may deal with any area or time period. Proposals focusing on historiography, methodology, pedagogy, and public history are also welcome.
Proposals may consist of individual papers, sessions on a common theme, or discussion panels. Panels might address topics like the following, and we are open to other topics:
The Centennial of President John F. Kennedy's birth
The Centennial of U.S. Entry into World War I
The Obama Administration as History
World-systems and Diversity: Time for deeper history on Mercosur, ASEAN and the African Union?
Technology and History
Paper sessions generally include three papers (20 minutes each) and a chair or commentator. In addition to traditional format sessions (scholarly papers with chair and commentator), the Ohio Academy welcomes non-traditional formats such as roundtables, discussion panels, or teaching-focused formats.
