Please submit proposals as a Word document to NERWHAProg@gmail.com
Deadline: 1 August 2014
The New England Regional World History Association invites proposals for panels, individual papers, and roundtables related to the theme of “Industrialization and World History.”
Proposals can be interdisciplinary, research-based, or have a pedagogical framework. Preference will be given to submissions based on the symposium’s theme, but we also welcome submissions on all aspects of world history scholarship and pedagogy.
Submissions relating to the theme could include, but are not limited to, any of the following consequences of industrial development in any era of the human past: urbanization and social change; environmental challenges; social-economic stratification and daily life; migration and challenges to identity and culture; leisure time and social change; new paradigms for regulations and power relationships; imperialism and responses to colonialism; modern ideologies; labor and political responses; and challenges to Eurocentric models of development.
NERWHA invites participation and attendance from the entire academic community and wishes to foster connections and build a network for sharing scholarship and best pedagogical practices across the spectrum of public and private education: K-12, higher education, independent scholarship, and public history.
Proposals should consist of a brief abstract (maximum 250 words), a one-page CV for each participant, and indicate any A/V needs. The Program Committee urges presenters to prepare their presentations with an eye toward engagement and discussion. Full details regarding the symposium, registration materials, accommodations, directions to Lowell, MA, and a map of the area will be available at the NERWHA website at <nerwha.org> in the late summer or early fall.
We tend to have mixed feelings about money. Money provides a near universal common denominator that allows people on opposite sides of the world to exchange things of value with great efficiency. Money drives so much of our thinking and it motivates us, for better or for worse, to do things we wouldn't otherwise do. For some, money is the most valuable possession of all.
The conference is free. Classroom preparation materials, including suggested readings and films, will be made available to teachers well ahead of time. Teachers interested in bringing groups of students to the conference should contact Kathy Mathis at 224-4071 or by e-mail
2014 Civic Leadership project sponsored by the Cohen Center and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. This program is designed to explore the impact of extremism and prejudice while examining the roles and responsibilities of civic leaders in a democratic society.
The Cohen Center Civic Leadership Program is designed for 20-25 participants to travel to Washington DC from October 7-9, 2014 to tour the permanent exhibit of the USHMM, and discuss the legacies and lessons of the Holocaust with staff from the Museum and representatives of the Cohen Center.
The USS Constitution Museum is pleased to announce that Boston-based Liberty Mutual Insurance will sponsor all public school visits to the museum from Sept. 2012 to June 2015, thus allowing for free field trips for students of all ages, in and outside of Massachusetts. Public schools that participate in the Liberty Mutual Insurance-sponsored field trips will have access to a range of fun and educational experiences, using the historic naval vessel, USS Constitution and its crew as a lens for understanding the War of 1812. Through programs geared toward various grade levels-from pre-school through 12th grade-students can explore the excitement of "shipboard life" and the concept that ordinary people, working together towards a common goal, can have a direct and powerful impact on the nation's future. To learn more about the USS Constitution Museum and its field trip activities, please visit www.ussconstitutionmuseum.org/. Please note that field trips must be scheduled in advance, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
