Ninth Annual Meeting, May 20-22, 2018
Call for Papers
The Program Committee for the Ninth 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 its annual meeting at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, May 20-22, 2018. 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 March 2, 2018.
Please direct all proposals and questions via email to the Society of Appalachian Historians at SAH@etsu.edu.
