2014 Researching New York State Conference

Call for Papers - Deadline July 11, 2014

The organizers of the Researching New York Conference invite proposals for presentations on any aspect of New York State history —in any time period and from any perspective. This annual conference brings together historians, archivists, public historians, graduate students, teachers, documentarians, and multimedia producers, to share their work on New York State history.

Encouraged are submissions that explore all facets of identity in New York, whether in individuals, groups, or communities, whether geographic or over time, whether political, social, or cultural.
