Call for Student Research Proposals 
Pennsylvania Historical Association 2013 Annual Meeting
October 17-19, 2013 Gettysburg, PA

Recognizing the importance of introducing the next generation of scholars and teachers to the best practices of the profession, the Pennsylvania Historical Association is pleased to announce the inclusion of a poster session for student research at its 2013 Annual Meeting. Proposals must list a faculty mentor and may include up to three students per proposal. The proposals may consist of topics focused on any historical theme, period, or methodological approach related to the Mid-Atlantic region. Students will be expected to conduct original, primary source-based research, preferably in an archival setting, during the course of their project along with significant secondary source analysis. The committee will also consider projects that address innovative techniques for teaching Pennsylvania History at the K-12 level.

Research for the project need not be completed by the May 15 application deadline, but the proposal abstract should convey a clear understanding of the historical and scholarly context of the specific subject matter. We encourage students currently working on projects to submit their proposals as soon as possible. The program committee will inform applicants and faculty mentors of their proposal’s status during the summer, with a project completion check to be confirmed by September 15. Student participants are required to be PHA members at the time of the conference (note: there is a special PHA student membership rate of $30.00).

Proposal Due Date: May 15, 2013
