The conference is particularly interested in proposals for complete sessions, including panelists, chair, and commentator. Anyone wishing to present a paper should submit a short abstract and a one-page curriculum vitae. Panel proposals should include a brief abstract of the panel’s purpose, short descriptions of the individual papers, and one-page CVs for all participants.

All proposals should be submitted online. Details for submission are available at For additional information, please contact John Brenner, managing editor, The State Historical Society of Missouri, at or 573.882.7083.

Although the conference typically hosts academics of all levels, the program committee would like to make a special appeal to graduate students. The friendly and inviting atmosphere provides an excellent opportunity for aspiring and young historians to present their work.

Students should also apply for the Student Paper Prize ($250) and the Lynn and Kristen Morrow Missouri History Student Prize ($150). See for more information.
