Advocating for Change

 

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 publications@azhs.gov.  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.)
