Panel and Paper Proposals for SEWHA Peace and Human Rights in World History Conference, October 10-11, 2014

The June 1 Call for Papers (CFP) deadline has passed and we have 16 paper proposals in hand (4 complete panels (4 x 3 papers each = 12), 3 individual paper submissions, and one partial panel submission).  There are three additional possible panels, and a possible individual paper.

We almost have enough papers now, as there are slots for six or seven panels, or even eight if we start really early, so that makes 8 x 4 = 32 papers maximum, 6 x 3 = 18 papers minimum.  If everyone who is thinking about submitting actually does so the conference will be really full, but some who expressed interest may not follow through and actually submit.  Accordingly, I’m sending out this revised CFP due August 1–only the date is changed from the earlier one, and attach it here for circulation.  Please pass on or remind contacts.  This serves not just as outreach to elicit papers, but to advertise the conference and hopefully some will attend even if they aren’t presenting.
