Pacific Northwest Historians Guild
A Call for Papers and Presentations
Conference on the Pacific Northwest Borderlands
25th Annual Conference, Seattle, March 6, 2010
The 2010 Conference, to be held at Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry, will explore the Pacific Northwest as a borderland. The Pacific Northwest is a diverse region geographically, politically, and culturally. Its history is therefore equally diverse. What does the Northwest’s past mean to the various and varied populations living within the region?
Suggested focus for papers and presentations include but are not limited to:
• Native-settler relations
• Asian Americans in the Northwest
• The Pacific Northwest in the world. How does the region influence other parts of the nation or the world?
• The Cosmopolitan Northwest. How does the region change as its transnational connections grow?
• Annexation and Statehood
• Washington-Canada relations
• Russia-Alaska relations
• Native communities straddling the Canada-US border
• Smuggling illicit goods
• Border crossing and border control
• Frontier and Settled land
• The Northwest and the Pacific Ocean
The Guild conference is unique in the Pacific Northwest, offering opportunities for those interested in historical research to share their work with others. The program includes new work by academic historians and independent scholars as well as by community historians, journalists, filmmakers, genealogists, oral historians, students and folklorists. We invite papers from researchers in other disciplines who have insights to share. History lovers and experts can learn from one another, opening new fields of historical scholarship.
Please submit proposals to the Guild for review by the Conference Program Committee. Proposals should include a title, presenter contact information, brief presenter biography, and a paragraph describing the presentation. Submissions should be postmarked by December 15th, 2009 and mailed to PNWHG Conference, 2908-27th Avenue West, Seattle WA 98199. For more information contact Jon Olivera, Program Chair, at email@example.com.

Thank you very much for this heads-up. This might work for an idea I've had.
Is there any high-priest incantanation I need to append to the proposal? Or is this an equal-opportunity program? Grin.
