Celebrate New York State History Month 2016 at 
Researching New York and Conference on New York State History

University at Albany, Albany, New York
November 17-19, 2016


Looking Back—Looking Forward
Exploring Intersections of Society, Culture, Policy, & Law

This year we are pleased to join with the New York State Historical Association/Conference on New York State History, as well as our longtime partner, The Archives Partnership Trust, to present a single expanded 2016 conference exploring all aspects of New York State History. Joining us are the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government and the Albany Law School, as we explore the implications of the 2017 vote on whether to hold a Constitutional Convention in New York State. The expanded program, in development, will also include additional workshops and opportunities for secondary school teachers.


Call for Papers and Proposals

Conference organizers invite proposals from any time period and any methodological perspective on any aspect of New York State history. The conference meets annually in November, bringing together historians, archivists, public historians, graduate students, museum curators, teachers, documentarians, and more to share their work on New York State history. Organizers welcome proposals for workshops, roundtables, panels, and individual papers from scholars, public history professionals, educators, librarians, and others engaged in the study and dissemination of New York State History. Work that addresses issues surrounding the interpretation, preservation, commemoration, and public presentation of New York State history is welcome. Proposals are due August 8, 2016.



Special Focus
In addition to seeking proposals on any New York State history topic in any time period, we especially welcome proposals exploring the conference theme from a broad perspective of law, governance, and policy from settlement to the present. As they do every 20 years, New Yorkers will vote, in 2017, on whether to hold a Constitutional Convention to change the New York State Constitution. Understanding this historically, in the larger context of society, politics, civic engagement, and more, informs current debates over convening a constitutional convention while enlarging our understanding of the civic life and history of New York State. Historically, debates leading up to and actual outcomes of Constitutional Conventions have often had wide ranging, if not always well-understood, implications for the citizens of New York.
