24th Annual BrANCH Conference
University of Warwick, 6-8 October 2017
Call For Papers
Peter Parish Memorial Lecture: Emily West (University of Reading), “Reflections on the History and Historians of the Black Woman’s Role in the Community of Slaves”
Saturday Night Keynote: Jeff Forret (Lamar University)
The BrANCH committee is pleased to invite proposals for panels and papers on all aspects of U.S. history from the period 1789-1917. We particularly encourage panels that open new lines of communication between established thematic specialties as well as individual papers that cut across traditional categories of historical inquiry in imaginative and innovative ways. Postgraduate contributions are especially welcome. Subsidies for UK-based postgraduate participants will be offered on a first come first served basis.
Please send a brief CV and a summary of the proposed paper or panel (no more than three speakers per panel and 300 words per paper, please) by Friday 24 February to the Conference Secretaries at email@example.com. Please note that all programme participants will be expected to register as BrANCH members.
Conference Secretaries: Tim Lockley & Lydia Plath (Warwick)
