Seeing History: Traces and Representations of the Past
The Program Committee for the 2017 Pacific Coast Branch of the American Historical Association (PCB–AHA) 110th annual meeting invites proposals for panels, papers, roundtables, and workshops that relate to the general theme, “Seeing History: Traces and Representations of the Past.”
We welcome proposals that grapple with ways of seeing, representing and envisioning the past through texts, images, films, culture, landscape, and memory. Possible themes include, but by no means are limited to: individual and group self–representations; the making of cultural identities; the role of arts in cultural production (particularly in public history contexts); the creation of landscapes and spaces; community–making; the optics of digital humanities; comparative and transnational approaches; visual literacies; and the development of diverse aesthetics across periods and places. This year’s meeting also offers opportunities to mark and consider 20th–century anniversaries.
The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2017.
