Arizona History Convention Logo2021 Annual Arizona History Convention
“Advocating for Change, Navigating Crises”

All-Virtual Conference: April 20‒24, 2021

Call for Proposals

The 61st Arizona History Convention, cancelled last year due to the coronavirus, returns in April 2021 in a virtual format. Building off last year’s theme, “Advocating for Change,” we invite papers that reflect on disruptions, changes, and crises. Change can come in many forms and have varied consequences. Mindful of the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women the right to vote nationally, as well as other moments of change, 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. Presenters must have the ability to make their presentations digitally via a computer or other electronic device with a camera.

Proposals must be submitted by October 15, 2020, to Dr. Lora Key, c/o Arizona Historical Society, 949 E. 2nd St., Tucson, AZ 85719, or [email protected]. Email submissions are preferred. Only one proposal per presenter. Include name, email address, phone number, and brief biographical information, along with title of presentation and a short abstract. (All correspondence will come via email, so please ensure that you include a working email address.)
