History Majors: Consider Presenting a Paper Next Fall (October 3-4) at the Undergraduate Meeting of the Conference on Faith and History

-If we can get enough students interested in this I would be willing to take a van up to Wenham, MA (Gordon College) for the conference.  If you might be even the slightest bit interested in presenting at this conference, let me know.   The student conference of the Conference on Faith and History is a wonderful venue for presenting your work to other Christian undergraduates.  It is also a great opportunity to meet other Christian history majors and professors from across the country.  We have had students in the past who have presented at this conference and had a great experience. –JF

To learn more about the Conference on Faith and History and the student conference click hereI have posted the Call for Papers below.

The Conference on Faith and History holds two biennial conferences in the fall of even-numbered years, with an undergraduate research conference followed by the regular biennial conference. Our last conference was at George Fox University in Newberg OR, October 6-7 and 7-9, 2010, with the general theme of “The Search for Peace, Justice, and Equality.” See below for details and links concerning our 1998-2010 conferences.

Our 28th Biennial Fall Conference in 2012 on “Cultural Change and Adaptation,” will be at Gordon College in Massachusetts. John Wigger (University of Missouri; eMail=wiggerj@missouri.edu) is general program chair and Jennifer Hevelone-Harper (Gordon College; eMail=J.Hevelone-Harper@gordon.edu) is the local arrangements chair. The student conference will be October 3-4 and the Biennial Conference will be October 4-6.

A CALL FOR PAPERS has been issued. This year’s theme, “Cultural Change and Adaptation,” a deliberately broad designation intended to encompass how people and organizations interact with their culture in all geographical areas and historical periods. Session proposals are particularly encouraged, but the program committee will also consider individual paper proposals that can be organized into sessions wherever possible.

The deadline for submitting proposals is May 1, 2012. A pdf file outlining policies for conference paper and panel proposals is posted on the CFH webpage: here. Proposals for the October 4-6 Biennial Conference should be submitted to John Wigger (University of Missouri) at wiggerj@missouri.edu. Proposals for the October 3-4 undergraduate student research conference should be submitted to Jared Burkholder (Grace College) at burkhojs@grace.edu.
