Researching New York 2005:
Perspectives on Empire State History

We are pleased to announce that Penn State History Professor Lori D.
Ginzberg, author of the just published "Untidy Origins: A Story Of Woman's
Rights In Antebellum New York," will deliver the keynote address.  While we
welcome proposals on any aspect of New York State History, for Researching
New York 2005 we also encourage submissions that highlight the rich and
diverse history of women in New York State.

The organizers of the 7th Annual Researching New York Conference invite
proposals for papers, panels, workshops, roundtables, exhibits, documentary,
and media or multi-media presentations on any facet of the history of New
York State—from settlement to the present. The conference will be held at
the University at Albany, State University of New York on November 17th and
18th, 2005.

Researching New York brings together historians, researchers, archivists,
librarians, graduate students, museum curators, Web site creators,
filmmakers, and documentarians to share their work on New York State
history. As in previous years, the conference will emphasize the integral
relations between researchers and archival resources. Presentations that
highlight the vast resources available to researchers, as well as
scholarship drawn from those resources, are encouraged.

Proposals are due by July 15, 2005. Full panel proposals, workshops,
roundtables, exhibits, and media presentations are encouraged. Partial
panels and individual submissions will be considered. For panels and full
proposals, please submit a one-page abstract of the complete session, a one
page abstract for each paper or presentation, and a one-page curriculum vita
for each participant. Individual submissions should include a one-page
abstract and one-page curriculum vita. All submissions must include name,
address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Please be sure to notify us
of any change of contact information after submission of your proposal. We
