8th JPH Conference on Policy History 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The Jour­nal of Pol­icy His­tory and the Insti­tute for Polit­i­cal His­tory are host­ing the eighth bien­nial Con­fer­ence on Pol­icy His­tory at the Sher­a­ton on Capi­tol Square hotel in Colum­bus, Ohio from June 4 to June 7, 2014.

    Since the first Pol­icy His­tory Con­fer­ence in St. Louis, Mis­souri, the pri­mary goal behind the con­fer­ence has been to pro­vide an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary forum for schol­ars of pol­icy his­tory, Amer­i­can polit­i­cal devel­op­ment, and com­par­a­tive his­tor­i­cal analysis.

    Con­fer­ences bring together schol­ars from the dis­ci­plines of His­tory, Polit­i­cal Sci­ence, Law, Soci­ol­ogy and other social sciences.

    Past con­fer­ences have included ses­sions on inter­na­tional and domes­tic pol­icy issues from the eigh­teenth through the twenty-​first cen­turies cov­er­ing top­ics as widely vari­able as social pol­icy, edu­ca­tion, eco­nom­ics, trade, for­eign affairs, immi­gra­tion, gen­der, civil rights, and envi­ron­men­tal policy.

    Call for Papers

    We are cur­rently accept­ing panel and paper pro­pos­als on all top­ics regard­ing Amer­i­can polit­i­cal and pol­icy his­tory, polit­i­cal devel­op­ment, and com­par­a­tive his­tor­i­cal analysis.

    Com­plete ses­sions, includ­ing two or three pre­sen­ters with chair/commentator(s) are strongly encour­aged. Indi­vid­ual paper pro­pos­als are wel­come. Because the con­fer­ence has grown in size, indi­vid­ual papers might have a more dif­fi­cult time being placed on the pro­gram. In order to accom­mo­date more par­tic­i­pates, con­fer­ence orga­niz­ers have cre­ated a poster ses­sion which will allow younger schol­ars to dis­play their research projects.
