Are you looking for an opportunity to present your research at an undergraduate historical conference? The Conference on Faith and History Undergraduate Meeting will take place on October 3-4 on the campus of Gordon College in Wenham, MA. As a I said in a previous post, if we can get enough students interested in this opportunity the department would consider driving a van to the meeting. If you have a research paper that you have written for a course (it does not have to be an original paper) feel please consider discussing this with me (Dr. Fea). If you are not sure you have a paper that is suitable, but would still like to think about presenting at this conference, please contact me as well. Though the conference is for undergraduates, May 2012 graduates are definitely eligible. The theme of the conference is “Cultural Change and Adaption,” but the organizers are willing to consider all historical topics. I hope you will consider this great opportunity, but if you are interested you must move quickly. Deadline for submission of a 300 word abstract (not the entire paper) is due on May 1.
Here is the official announcement:
Our 28th Biennial Fall Conference in 2012 on “Cultural Change and Adaptation,” will be at Gordon College in Massachusetts. John Wigger (University of Missouri; eMailfirstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
