Some of you may be interested in the following conference:
Apologies for troubling you with this but. . . I am on the program committee for the 2012 Western History Association’s conference. This will be held in Denver, Thursday, 4 – 7 October (Thursday – Sunday) — not this coming October, I should add, but October 2012. The WHA – a very congenial group of academics – is keen to attract more Canadian content, and hence I am dutifully trying to assist in this goal. If you’re at all interested in presenting at this conference, I’d certainly encourage you to do so.
The conference title for 2012 is “Boundary Markers and Border Crossers:
Finding the West and Westerners” and the call for papers is online as a .PDF – http://www.westernhistoryassociation.org/wp-content/uploads/2012-Call-for-Papers.pdf
Note that the deadline for proposals is 1 September 2011.
