The committee is looking forward to considering your full panel proposals for our conference theme From the Mayflower to Silicon Valley: Tools and Traditions in American Intellectual History due March 1. Proposals may be for traditional paper sessions, roundtable format with audience comment, workshop/seminar-style discussions, “author meets critics” events, retrospectives on significant works or thinkers, or other formats that encourage the exchange of ideas. The committee is especially eager to ensure ethnic, gender and institutional diversity at the conference. We welcome the participation of graduate students, independent scholars, and all faculty ranks. Please check the CFP for further details. Need co-panelist? Go to the Forum set up for communicating your topic ideas to others. See you October 13-15 on the lovely campus of Stanford University!
