The Historical Society of New Mexico and the Arizona History Convention Board invites proposals for papers and presentations for the 2022 New Mexico – Arizona Joint History Convention to be held at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum, Las Cruces, New Mexico, April 7 – 9, 2022.

Papers on any aspect of New Mexico or Arizona history are welcome. These may include archeology, anthropology, biography, and other topics related to pre-colonial Native Americans, Spanish, Mexican, Territorial, Statehood, or other contemporary historical issues or topics.

Conference sessions are ninety minutes in length and usually consist of oral delivery of two or three papers or presentations, each approximately 20-30 minutes in length, allowing time for a moderator’s introduction and questions from the audience. Proposals for individual presentations should be limited to one page in length, and must include presenter contact information (email, mailing address, and phone), presentation title, a brief synopsis, a brief biography and any technical support needed. Proposals for single presentations are generally matched with similar topics to constitute a full session. The program committee encourages proposals for topical sessions occupying the full ninety-minute period. These should include a proposed title for the session, names and brief bios of presenters, title of each presentation, a moderator, and contact information for all panel members.

Presenters must register as conference participants. Arrangements will be made to have a laptop, digital projector and screen in each presentation room. Presenters should bring their presentation on a thumb drive and may want to consider bringing their own laptop in the event of equipment incompatibility.

Deadline for submissions is Sunday, October 31, 2021. The preferred method of submission is by email attachment to Robert J. Tórrez, program chair, at [email protected] but can also be mailed to HSNM Program Committee, 8109 Corte del Viento NW, Albuquerque, NM 87120. Notification of acceptance and scheduling will be sent as soon as the program is set (hopefully by January 1, 2022).
