The Indiana Association of Historians invites papers and panel proposals for its annual meeting to be held at Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana, on February 18, 2012.

The program committee is particularly interested in proposals that examine the history of people’s moving through their world: from the explorers who first move into territories new to them, to the pioneers and immigrants who transplant themselves in unfamiliar places, to the entrepreneurs who profit from new transportation networks, to the tourists and pilgrims who visit famous places.

The committee will consider papers and sessions on all topics and welcomes submissions in the fields of K-12 history education and public history. Graduate students are encouraged to participate. Conference papers (approximately 10 pages/2,500 words) may be based on original research, synthesis of scholarship, or participant experience. Sessions will consist of two or three papers with comments.

To submit a proposal for a paper and/or session, send a one-page proposal for each presentation and a one-page c.v. Panel proposals should include a one-page proposal, which specifies the topic each participant will discuss, and a one-page c.v. per participant.

The deadline for submitting paper and/or session proposals is November 11, 2011. E-mail submissions are encouraged and will be accepted until the deadline.

Submit proposals to:
