Call for Papers
Fifth Annual Meeting Call for Papers
The Program Committee for the Fifth Annual Meeting of the Society of Appalachian Historians (SAH) invites proposals
for single papers (abstracts of no more than 250 words) and entire sessions (overview and abstracts for each paper) for the
annual meeting to be held in Berea, Kentucky, on the campus of Berea College, May 19-21, 2014.
The Society of Appalachian Historians seeks to provide a forum for the dissemination and discussion of innovative historical
scholarship on any aspect of Appalachia and encourages submissions by historians exploring new areas of inquiry. Graduate
students in particular are invited to present their research at this collegial and learned gathering. Proposals will be evaluated
primarily on the originality and promise of the proposed work. To promote dialogue during the conference sessions, individuals
whose proposals are accepted will be expected to submit completed papers for distribution to conference attendees in advance
of the conference.
The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2014.
Please direct all proposals and questions via email to the Society of Appalachian Historians at firstname.lastname@example.org
