“Identity and Politics in the Mid-Atlantic” | Call for Student Research Proposals

The program committee of the Pennsylvania Historical Association invites proposals for student research presentations at the annual meeting being held in Johnstown from October 10-12, 2024. We encourage students interested in Pennsylvania or Mid-Atlantic history at all levels including graduate students, undergraduate students, and high school students to share their original scholarly or public history work as well as lesson plans.

Projects dealing with any aspect of Pennsylvania or Mid-Atlantic History may be submitted for consideration.  K-12 and undergraduate student submissions can either be a poster presentation or a multi-media project, including a website. Graduate students may choose to submit either a poster presentation or a digital/video media project or submit a paper proposal for the regular conference sessions (due February 15). Student research proposals are due by May 15 and may be submitted at the button links below.

PHA membership, which is available at a student rate of $30 per year, is not required for a proposal, but is required for participation. Proposals must be submitted electronically by the extended deadline, May 29, 2024, to https://pa-history.org/meetings/ Questions should be directed to Dr. Bonnie Rock-McCutcheon, Assistant Professor of History at Wilson College at bonnie.rock@wilson.edu.
