The 73rd annual meeting of the New York State Association of European Historians will be held in New York City (Brooklyn) on October 13-14, 2023, hosted by St. Francis College. The theme of this year’s conference is “Urban, Environmental, and Built Histories.”
The conference begins on Friday evening with a dinner and the James S. Valone plenary lecture by Dr. Kara Schlichting, Associate Professor of History at Queens College, CUNY, and author of New York Recentered: Building the Metropolis from the Shore (2019). Panels will be held on Saturday at St. Francis College (www.sfc.edu/).
The Association encourages submissions addressing this year’s theme, or any aspect of European history or Europe’s connections with New York state or the wider world, and in any time period. They invite traditional research presentations and pedagogy-focused presentations from professional historians and graduate students, as well as undergraduate paper presentations. Full panel proposals are also welcome.
The conference provides a welcoming and collegial atmosphere, and they encourage graduate students, and independent and early-career scholars to submit proposals, including papers based on work(s)-in-progress. Graduate students can submit their papers for the annual Barbara Blaszak Prize. This year, they will also award the Charles R. Bailey Prize for an article published by a NYSAEH member between 2020-2023.
Proposals for presentations and/or panels should include a 100-150 word abstract for each presentation and a one-paragraph biography for each presenter. Email proposals to NYSAEH president, Averill Earls (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 1, 2023.
