CFP: The Great Depression Revisited

The George Washington Forum on American Ideas, Politics, and Institutions at Ohio University invites paper proposals for a conference and subsequent edited volume on the Great Depression in the United States. The conference will be held at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio on October 13–15, 2011. The call for papers states:
A global event as traumatic as it was transformative, the Great Depression permanently altered the trajectory of state formation in the United States and prompted critical debates about the obligation and capacity of central governments to provide citizens with economic stability and security—debates that continue to resonate prominently today. This conference aims to promote academic discussion and to explore new research trends on the political, economic, and institutional legacy of the Great Depression, from its origins in the twenties to the New Deal’s response over the following decade. Papers on the conference theme addressing a wider chronological context beyond World War II are also encouraged. The conference organizers welcome the work of advanced doctoral students and both young and established scholars in the fields of history, political science, and economics.
Proposals should include a 500-word abstract, a brief curriculum vitae, and current contact information and should be sent by April 2, 2011, to Robert G. Ingram, Director, The George Washington Forum, Department of History, Bentley Annex 415, Ohio University, Athens, OH 45701–2979, USA; email: washingtonforum@ohio.edu. Notifications of a paper’s acceptance will be mailed in early April.
