Call for papers – Deadline extended to December 17, 2017

The Pacific Northwest Historians Guild invites proposals for presentations at its biennial conference on March 3, 2018, at the downtown Seattle Public Library.

Everyone wishing to share their research on the history of the Pacific Northwest is welcome to submit a proposal.

The conference theme is “From
Armistice to Amazon: A Century of Transformations,” and papers addressing
the profound changes the region experienced between 1918 and 2018 are
especially encouraged. Whether you’re interested in immigration or aviation,
radical politics or the fishing wars, agriculture or internet shopping, we look
forward to hearing from you. All proposals will be considered on their merits.

Please send a 250-word summary of your proposed paper and short bio to
pacificnwhistoriansguild@gmail.com by December 17, 2017.
Proposals for full panels are also welcome; the organizer should include a panel
abstract along with the summaries of each paper and bios of all participants.

The conference on March 3, 2018 is free, but program participants are encouraged
to become members of the Pacific Northwest Historians Guild.

The Pacific Northwest Historians Guild brings together scholars concerned
with the study and dissemination of regional history. Founded in November
1980, the Guild fosters teaching and appreciation of Northwest history and
promotes communication among regional historians.
