Researching New York 2011 
Upheaval & Disaster, Triumph & Tragedy: Aftermath

November 17th & 18th, 2011
University at Albany, SUNY

The organizers of the 14th annual Researching New York Conference once again
invite proposals for panels, papers, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, and
documentary and multimedia presentations on any aspect of New York State
history -in any time period and from any perspective. Researching New York
brings together historians, archivists, museum curators, graduate students,
teachers, documentarians, and multimedia producers, to share their work on
New York State history. Presentations that highlight the vast resources
available to researchers, as well as scholarship drawn from those resources,
are encouraged. 

Anniversaries are a means to recall, celebrate, or commemorate significant
milestones in history. Often forgotten is what came next. Examining the
aftermath of momentous events in both the short and long-term enlarges
historical understanding, whether viewed from a political, cultural, social,
legislative, or other perspective. 2011 marks a number of anniversaries:
9/11, the Attica Prison Uprising, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, and
the beginning of the Civil War, among others. For Researching New York 2011
we encourage submissions that not only explore how we remember, commemorate,
and create meaning from these and other notable events in New York State
history, but that also consider what came next.

Proposals are due by July 1, 2011. Complete panels, workshops, media
presentations, or sessions are preferred; we will consider partial panels
and individual submissions. For complete sessions please submit a one-page
abstract of the session, a one page abstract for individual presentations,
and a one-page curriculum vita for each participant. For individual
submissions, include a one-page abstract and one-page vita. Submissions must
include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Please submit
electronically to [log in to unmask]  All proposals must detail any
anticipated audiovisual needs or time constraints. All conference
participants are expected to register for  the conference. 

We  also seek commentators for panels. If you would like to comment on a
panel,  please contact us at  [log in to unmask], indicating your area of
expertise, along with a one-page vita.
