CFP: AHA Annual Meeting, New York, 2015

The American Historical Association (AHA) has issued the call for proposals for its 2015 meeting. The AHA will meet in New York City on January 2-5, 2015, when the theme of the meeting will be "History and Other Disciplines." The Program Committee welcomes session proposals from all members of the Association, whatever their institutional affiliation or status, as well as from affiliated societies, historians working outside the United States, and scholars in related disciplines. Please note that proposals for individual presentations can be submitted only as posters; single paper proposals will not be considered for any other type of session.
   Proposals, which can be drawn up in several different categories this year, must be submitted on-line. The deadline is February 15, 2014. Those considering sending in a submission might first want to read Debbie Ann Doyle, "New Ideas for Creative Formats at the Annual Meeting," which outlines the possibilities of various new session formats.
    BHC members should be aware that the organization is an affiliated society of the AHA, and that there is a Liaison Committee to facilitate interaction, currently co-chaired by Josh Lauer and Caitlin Rosenthal. Note, however, that affiliated status does not give organizations priority in the selection process.
