The Association for the Study of Connecticut History, publisher of the journal Connecticut History Review, the History Department of Central Connecticut State University, and the Connecticut State Library project “Remembering World War One: Sharing History/Preserving Memories” are sponsoring a one-day conference on Connecticut and the Great War, on Saturday, November 7th, 2015. The meeting to be held at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, CT will feature both concurrent and plenary sessions with speakers from diverse backgrounds discussing a wide variety of topics that focus on the any and all aspects of World War I in Connecticut.
Although researchers may focus on individual events or people, studies of the wider economic, political, social, and cultural impact are encouraged. This conference will bring together people with different backgrounds and expertise to explore how the Great War transformed the cultural, social, political, and economic landscape of Connecticut.
Historical society and museum personnel, graduate students, independent scholars, teachers, and members of the academy are all invited to make presentations. For consideration, please submit a paper title, abstract, and a short c.v.
Application deadline is July 15, 2015.
Proposals should be sent to conference chair: Nancy H. Steenburg, 493 Pequot Avenue, Mystic, CT 06355 or e-mailed (in MSWord format) to firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone (860) 405-9191.
