Call for Papers

“A Presidential Nation: The Presidency in U.S. History”

One-day conference, June 27, 2014

Prospective panel organizers should submit up to 500 words along with a short biographical note and contact details for each speaker. Submissions can also be considered for inclusion in a possible conference volume.
