Deadline for Submissions: March 3, 2019
Organization: History of Education Society (HES)
Event Location: Columbus, Ohio, USA
The Program Committee for the 2019 Annual Meeting of the History of Education Society invites proposals on all topics related to the history of education, in any period or nation, and especially proposals that cross cultures, periods, or national boundaries. The meeting will take place from Oct. 31-Nov. 3, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio.
Proposals are due on or before Sunday, March 3rd, 2019 (no later than 11:59 p.m. PST). To submit a proposal, please go to https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/HES2019.
The Committee defines education broadly to include all institutions of socialization – such as schools; universities; mass media; voluntary organizations; learned and/or scientific societies; libraries, museums, and other cultural institutions; vocational and/or corporate training enterprises; after-school and out-of-school learning environments; international organizations; and technology-mediated education. We invite proposals for individual papers, complete paper sessions, panel discussions, or workshops.
The 2019 Annual Meeting marks several key anniversaries relevant to the history of education, including: the 400th anniversary of the arrival of Africans into Jamestown; the 250th anniversary of the founding of Dartmouth College; the 150th anniversary of the opening of the First Transcontinental Railroad; the 100th anniversaries of the First Pan-African Conference in Paris organized by W.E.B. DuBois and Ida Gibbs Hunt, Carter G. Woodson’s Education of the Negro Prior to 1861 and the 1919 Race Riots (in Chicago, Washington, DC, Cleveland); and the 50th anniversaries of the Stonewall Riots and Sesame Street’s broadcast on PBS.
Conference Theme: History of Education in the Everyday - Building Inclusive Histories
All proposals are welcome, but we particularly encourage submissions on the following areas:
1. Global Democracies, Citizenship-Making and Education as a Fundamental Human Right
2. Resistance, Agency and Social Movements for Inclusive Education

An individual-paper proposal should be single-spaced and between 750-1000 words, excluding references. It should include the topic and an overview of the findings or conclusions, a discussion of how the paper relates to other scholarship in the field, and the sources. Please remove personal identifying information from the proposal document before uploading it, but include institutional affiliations and email addresses as instructed on the website.

A panel-discussion proposal should be single-spaced and no more than 2000 words, excluding references. The proposal should include an overview of the discussion topic, the major findings or conclusions, how they contribute to the field, and a chair.
