The History Department of the United States Naval Academy invites proposals for papers to be presented at its 20011 Naval History Symposium in Annapolis, Maryland, from 15-16 September 2011. The 2009 symposium was extremely successful, with over 300 in attendance and 138 papers presented.
Proposals on any aspect of naval and maritime history are welcome. Paper proposals should include an abstract not exceeding 250 words and a one-page vita. Panel proposals are strongly encouraged and should contain an abstract and vita for each panelist.
Please mail proposals to Dr. Marcus Jones, History Department (12C), 107 Maryland Avenue, Annapolis, Maryland 21402-5044. Send electronic proposals to email@example.com. The deadline for submitting proposals is 21 January 2011. The program committee expects to finalize the program in February 2011. Final versions of papers are due by 1 August 2011.
A limited number of travel stipends are available to scholars residing outside the United States and graduate students within the United States. Please indicate your desire to apply for a travel stipend in the cover letter or email that contains your proposal.
The program committee will award prizes to the best papers presented at the Symposium. As in the past, we will publish selected papers at a later date. The symposium is open to the public. To attend, however, you must register in advance. Information on registration, lodging and transportation, will be posted to this website as it becomes available.
