CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
40TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON D.C. HISTORICAL STUDIES
Washington, D.C., November 14-17, 2013
Submission Deadline: May 1, 2013

"Marching on Washington"

We invite you to take part in the 40th Annual Conference on D.C. Historical Studies. Submit your proposals for individual papers, panels, viewings of new films, walking tours, author talks on new books, and practical workshops on research or material preservation. All topics related to the history of metropolitan Washington, D.C., including nearby Maryland and Virginia, as well as the federal government, are welcome. Don't miss this opportunity to reach the conference audience of scholars, students, and interested members of the public eager for this lively consideration of all things D.C.

The theme for the 40th Annual Conference is "Marching on Washington," covering a diverse range of anniversaries: the 1963 Civil Rights March on Washington, 1973 initiation of modern Home Rule, the centennial of the 1913 Woman Suffrage Procession, and the sesquicentennial of the Emancipation Proclamation. Conference themes are not exclusive; the presentation of all new historical research about D.C. is welcome. Past presentations have considered art, archaeology, architecture, biography, D.C. governance, demography, geography, law, military, music, neighborhoods, race relations, schools, as well as oral history techniques and archival collection reviews.

The conference opens with the Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Lecture and reception, honoring the memory of this pioneering scholar of African American history. Kate Masur, an associate professor of history at Northwestern University and author of An Example for All the Land: Emancipation and the Struggle Over Equality in Washington, D.C., is the speaker.

You are also invited to take part in the Friday lunch-hour History Network, a forum where history-related organizations and vendors display materials explaining their activities and services.
