The Call for Papers for the 2018 Conference of the National Episcopal Historians and Archivists has been released. The conference theme is “In Remembrance of Thee: The History of Reconciliation in the Episcopal Church” which will examine how the Episcopal Church historically has addressed the need of reconciliation in the world. Activities include speakers, tours, exhibitions, worship, and workshops with an archival focus woven together with food and fellowship.
Papers and presentations based on the conference theme may be given by historians and archivists. NEHA seeks proposals that will be reviewed by a committee looking for a diverse mixture of topics. Each presenter selected is allocated 20 minutes with an expectation of a 15 minute presentation and 5 minutes for questions. Those who believe their proposal warrants additional time may include a request with explanation. Presentations are made on a voluntary basis. As a volunteer organization, NEHA is unable to provide an honorarium or assist with conference expenses.
Proposals must include a title, 150-200 word abstract, brief resumé of the speaker, and expected media/audio-visual requirements. Presentations may be requested for publication. Determination of papers accepted for the conference will be made no later than February 28, 2018. If accepted, the presenter will commit to attending the conference.
