Conference preparations are in full swing! The Papers Committee is hard at work finalizing their selections and will shortly be replying to those who submitted proposals with their decision. [EDIT 2/5: E-mails will go out by Feb. 9th/10th. ]
On another note, we would also like to remind everybody that our Book and Bake Sale for the spring semester is coming up next week, February 6-7 (Wednesday and Thursday) in the Herter lobby. We will have lots of good books and yummy snacks for sale so please stop by! Our proceeds will go towards making the conference as nice as we possibly can!
Check back later for more conference information- we hope to see you there!
Additionally, elections are coming up. Talk to a current officer to learn more about being Co-chair, Secretary, Treasurer, or GSS rep for next year. Nominations (you may nominate yourself) should go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to report that Dr. Joseph Ellis will be joining us for this year’s GHA interdisciplinary conference. Ellis is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation as well as many other popular books on the American Revolution and Early Republic. He will give the “Competing Visions” Keynote Address entitled “Telling the Story: The Summer of 1776″ during the afternoon of the conference (3/9). Mark your calendars!
The 2013 Annual Conference, “Competing Visions: Changing Landscapes in the Past, Present, and Future,” is coming up in March. See our Call for Proposals to submit a presentation proposal before January 15th, and stay tuned for an EXCITING announcement about this year’s keynote speaker!
