The following session took place during the 55th Annual Conference of the WHA, October 2015 at the Portland Hilton & Executive Tower in Portland, Oregon.
Please submit your papers, panels, and poster presentations by January 4, and encourage your colleagues to join us for the fifty-eighth annual Missouri Conference on History. Hosted and sponsored by The State Historical Society of Missouri, the 2016 conference will be held March 9–11 at the Courtyard by Marriott and Conference Center in Columbia.
The Missouri Conference on History is not limited to Missouri history topics. Proposals for papers on other geographic areas and from all historical time periods are invited.
The conference is particularly interested in proposals for complete sessions, including panelists, chair, and commentator. Anyone wishing to present a paper should submit a short abstract and a one-page curriculum vitae. Panel proposals should include a brief abstract of the panel’s purpose, short descriptions of the individual papers, and one-page CVs for all participants.
All proposals should be submitted online. Details for submission are available at http://shs.umsystem.edu/mch. For additional information, please contact John Brenner, managing editor, The State Historical Society of Missouri, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 573.882.7083.
Although the conference typically hosts academics of all levels, the program committee would like to make a special appeal to graduate students. The friendly and inviting atmosphere provides an excellent opportunity for aspiring and young historians to present their work.
Students should also apply for the Student Paper Prize ($250) and the Lynn and Kristen Morrow Missouri History Student Prize ($150). See http://shs.umsystem.edu/mch/awards for more information.
