The organisers note that planning for the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Historians in the German Association of American Studies (DGfA) has been difficult because of the ongoing pandemic. To provide the best possible experience under the circumstances, they have decided to move the conference “Labor and Capital in U.S. History” to a “digital plus” format. This means that all panels will take place online, with an option for those wanting to come to Mainz to attend in-person if the pandemic situation improves.
Accordingly, they are also reissuing the call for papers with these changed conditions in mind.
The DGfA conference will take place February 11–12, 2022, virtually via Zoom and Gather and, hopefully, with an in-person option at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany. They are accepting applications for individual papers as well as panels, and they are opening the application for virtual poster presentations for doctoral students whose research topics do not fit the scope of the conference.
The new deadline for paper proposals and poster applications is November 30, 2021.
