Historians: Call for Papers
Alaska Visionaries: Seekers, Leaders, and Dreamers
Amateur and professional historians are invited to submit proposals for papers, panels, and poster sessions for the Alaska Historical Society annual meeting and conference. The meeting will be held at the University of Alaska Anchorage, beginning October 16 and culminating on Alaska Day, October 18, 2008.
The theme Alaska Visionaries: Seekers, Leaders, and Dreamers provides an opportunity to discuss fifty years of Alaska statehood and ordinary people who helped shape modern Alaska into something extraordinary. It also asks Alaskans to consider the relevancy of such foresight, and, if indeed, the history of Alaska’s visionaries needs to be revised.
Written proposals for papers and panels should be sent no later than May 30, 2008 to: Katherine Johnson Ringsmuth, Program Chair, 19915 Highland Ridge Drive, Eagle River, Alaska 99577; phone: 907.830.2251; email: KatmaiKate@aol.com
The Alaska Historical Society offers two travel awards of $500 each to encourage students and new professionals to attend its annual meeting in Anchorage on October 16-18, 2007 at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Applications must be sent by June 8. For more information email: KatmaiKate@aol.com.
