I am in a very tight dilemma come October; I am set to present a paper at an American history conference in Salt Lake City, Utah the same week the European history development committee is meeting in another state. Here is what I am hoping will happen: My paper will be placed early on the program so that I can fly into Salt Lake on the 21st, present my work on the 22nd, then fly to the committee meeting on the 23rd — a day before our meetings start. I wish I was superman — just for one week.
Here is the email I sent asking/begging to present my work at an earlier time.
Dear Professor __________ and Professor ____________:
As program committee chairs, I am writing you about the fall WHA meeting in hopes that I might be able to present my work on the 22nd of October due to a major scheduling conflict with the national European history exam committee. Our committee has elected to meet for reserach purposes from October 24th to the 26th; I realize this is an odd request, but it is one of dire need if I am able to present my work at this conference.
I look forward to hearing back from you on this matter.
