Call for proposals! The Society for Historians of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era (SHGAPE) is calling for panel proposals for the Organization of American Historians (OAH) Meeting and the American Historical Association (AHA) Meeting.
AHA and OAH Annual Meetings in 2018: The deadlines for submitting proposals for panels for the 2018 OAH and AHA annual meetings are January 16, 2017, for the OAH and February 15, 2017, for the AHA.

You should submit your proposals to the OAH and AHA program committees by their deadlines as well as to the SHGAPE program committee.  Send them to our society’s new vice president and president-elect Albert S. Broussard at a-broussard@tamu.edu.  He will be the new chair of the program committee in 2017.  Eligibility for SHGAPE travel support to present at the OAH is contingent on SHGAPE sponsorship and membership.


Proposals to SHGAPE re: the Organization of American Historians (OAH) Conference:

In addition to co-sponsoring panels accepted through the regular OAH application process, SHGAPE sponsors its own panels independently of the OAH selection committee.  To apply for SHGAPE co-sponsorship, you should submit your application through the OAH portal and also email a copy (in one .pdf file) to SHGAPE program committee chair.  This will also place your application into consideration for exclusive SHGAPE sponsorship.  Your application should include the same information requested by the OAH program committee:

– A complete mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, and affiliation for each participant, with the session organizer (contact person) clearly identified
– A title and abstract of no more than 500 words for the session as a whole
– A title and prospectus of no more than 250 words for each paper presentation (this only applies to paper sessions, not to panel, roundtable, or state of the field proposals)
– A biography of no more than 500 words for each participant

FOR THE OAH DEADLINE: January 16, 2017
