Call for Papers and Presentations
Crossroads of Commerce: The Free Enterprise History of Oklahoma
April 23, 24, and 25, 2014
The Oklahoma Historical Society is seeking papers and presentations for the 2014 OHS Annual Meeting, which will be held April 23, 24, and 25 at the Stillwater Community Center, Stillwater, Oklahoma. A total of ten concurrent paper sessions will be held on Thursday, April 23, and Friday, April 24. Each session will feature either two or three presentations.
The theme for the Annual Meeting is “Crossroads of Commerce: The Free Enterprise History of Oklahoma.” From the territorial era to the present, Oklahoma has been shaped by inventions and innovations in its business and industrial development. Throughout this period, Oklahomans have combined capital, hard work, creativity, and emerging markets to drive the wheels of economic development. A small sample of the wide range of topics that could be relevant to this theme includes frontier trade, agriculture, petroleum and mining, railroads, retail trade, manufacturing, food processing, cooperatives, recreation, restaurants, and the role of labor and individual entrepreneurs.
Presentations should be limited to 20 or 30 minutes in length, depending on the number of participants in each session. One-page proposals should include the title of the presentation; a 100-word description of the presentation; the name, address, phone number, and email address of the presenter; and a short curriculum vitae or brief biographical sketch. Those who submit proposals will be notified of their status by early February of 2014 if not earlier. Registration fees for program participants will be waived.
Presentation proposals are being accepted now. The deadline for submitting presentation proposals is Tuesday, December 31, 2013.
