Nineteenth Annual World History Association Conference
Place: San Diego Marriott Mission Valley
This year’s dual themes are: „Gender in World History“ and „The Pacific in World History.“
The World History Association invites proposals from scholars and teachers around the world for panels (up to 3 panelists, one chair, and one discussant), single papers, and roundtables (between 4 to 5 participants) on topics related to the scholarly and/or pedagogical aspects of the conference’s themes, „Gender in World History“ and „The Pacific in World History.“
The Program Committee encourages mixed panels composed of K-12 teachers, university professors, and independent scholars in which cutting-edge scholarship is presented and then discussed as to how it might be introduced into the classroom, as well as panels devoted to research in progress and sessions dealing with the current scholarship of „big issues“ in world history and how these issues might be brought to the classroom. The committee also invites proposals for sessions in which all papers and commentary have been posted on the WHA website in advance and the entire session is devoted to open discussion of the issues raised. Priority will be given to full panel submissions, but individual papers will be considered, and if accepted will be placed into panels put together by the Program Committee. Papers and proposed panels that do not fit into the conference themes will be considered and might be accepted, as space allows.
Each proposal should include: a 250-word abstract of each paper, a curriculum vitae for each participant, and a statement noting how each paper makes an original contribution to scholarship or pedagogy.
Audio-visual support is exceedingly costly. Please make A/V requests only if absolutely necessary. This will also help prevent the inevitable mechanical problems. As always, handouts are welcome. Please submit
proposals online using the forms and guidelines available at http://www.thewha.org.
Guidelines for panel organizers, paper presenters, commentators, and chairs are posted at http://www. thewha.org and should be read with care and followed. Please note the strict 20-minute time limit for paper
