History Honor Society’s Call for Papers

I presented my very first paper at a professional meeting over a decade ago  after being invited to become a member of Phi Alpha Theta — the national history honor society; I was still a student then. I woke up early this morning to review my notes and the rough draft of my paper discussing rap music and culture as a historical mode of race relations in the 1980s United States history survey course. As of ten minutes ago, I submitted an abstract proposal of my paper.I guess we shall see if it is accepted.

Here is the honor society’s mission statement:

We are a professional society whose mission is to promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians. We seek to bring students, teachers and writers of history together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways.

Call for Papers:

January 6-9, 2010

Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina
San Diego, California
Submission Deadline:   October 1, 2009

  1. I know you are really smart and highly ambitious, but come on man, you are looking to take a vacation. I am now thinking of attending just to hang with you. Well, are you a stickler for actually attending the conference?

  2. If they accept my paper I assure you I will be the best participant there. I am pretty loyal to attending these things. But, it has been a while since we were at the same meeting. I am willing to make a case here.
