Call for Papers:
Toward a Peaceful World: Historical Approaches to Creating Cultures of Peace

The Peace History Society invites paper proposals for its biannual conference to be held at Winthrop University from October 29-31, 2009. Proposals can include efforts to achieve peace or prevent war, including long-term efforts at sustainable development, diplomatic efforts to avert war or maintain peace, and popular social and cultural movements which seek to end war or reform the international environment to avoid future wars. Papers can deal with either current or historical topics and can include, but are not limited to, religious approaches, people-to-people approaches, gender approaches, government-to government approaches, and those dealing with the challenges that peace advocates face in their efforts to bring about reform and lasting peace. Proposals can be for individual papers as well as complete panels including a commentator. Please send one page abstracts and a brief c.v. to both conference co-chairs, E. Timothy Smith, Ph.D., Professor of History, Department of History and Political Science, Barry University, Miami Shores, FL 33161 (esmith@mail.barry.edu), and Virginia S. Williams, Associate Professor of History, Department of History, 377 Bancroft, Winthrop University, Rock Hill, SC 29733 (williamsv@winthrop.edu), by March 20, 2009.

What is the American Historical Society and just how important is this when more troops are being sent into war?

We are an organization of historians. HAW is a place where the study of history meets activism for peace.

That, at least, is my understanding of our place. We are not just a random group of activists who by sheer coincidence happen to also be historians. This blog posting is highly relevant to that.
