American Historical Association (AHA) will hold its 2018 meeting in Washington, D.C., on January 4-7. The theme will be "Race, Ethnicity and Nationalism in Global Perspective"; the program committee co-chairs are Antoinette Burton and Rick Halpern. The organizers are hoping for a "rich and varied set of proposals" that will illuminate "how local and global ideas and practices of race, ethnicity, and other forms of difference have intersected over time in ways that have helped both to define the idea of the nation and to move it beyond its limits." The AHA encourages submission on the program theme, but the committee does not consider relevance to that theme in making acceptance decisions.
The AHA has extensive guidelines under which the program committee operates; there is also a FAQ. Only proposals for complete sessions will be considered. Please see the complete call for papers for additional information.
All proposals must be submitted electronically by midnight on February 15, 2017.
