61st Annual Arizona History Convention

Casino Del Sol
Tucson, Arizona
April 16–18, 2020

“Advocating for Change”
Call for Papers

The 61st annual Arizona History Convention will meet at the Casino Del Sol in Tucson, April 16–18, 2020. This year’s theme is “Advocating for Change.” Change can come in many forms and have varied consequences. As we approach the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women the right to vote nationally, the program committee encourages proposals for presentations that examine change-makers from Arizona’s past.

Both individual paper proposals and complete panel proposals are welcomed, as are proposals for workshops, roundtables, and/or panels that heavily utilize media. Proposals need not connect directly with this year’s theme. The program committee welcomes proposals on any topic in Arizona or southwestern borderlands
history during any time period.

Proposals must be submitted by October 15, 2019, to David Turpie, c/o Arizona Historical Society, 949 E. 2nd St., Tucson, AZ 85719, or [email protected]. Only one proposal per presenter. Include name, email address, phone number, and brief biographical information, along with title of presentation and a one-page abstract. (All correspondence will come via email, so please ensure that you include a working email address.)

Information on meals and lodging will be available in February 2020. For more information, contact Brandi Klein: (520) 617-1163 or via e-mail at [email protected].
