SHA 2013: Call for Papers closes in four weeks!

Belgrave Road, Leicester, during Diwali

There are now only four weeks until the Call for Papers for the SHA 2013 conference in Leicester closes, on 10th July.The conference committee in Leicester has already received many proposals via the online submission site, here, but we could always do with more!

If you are looking for further like-minded participants for your proposed symposium, do feel free to circulate details on the many listservs, and on the SHA 2013 Facebook page. A little earlier in the year we advertised a number of sessions that were seeking presenters here, and here; if you would like your proposed session advertised on this blog, please do get in touch.

It’s never too early to plan your trip to Leicester; all of the information you need to organise your visit to the city is on the conference web page, including a guide to travelling to Leicester, and the various accommodation options once you get here. If you are a student, you will probably want to apply for the Ed and Judy Jelks Student Travel Award. Parlez-vous français? Then take a look at the Quebec City Award, for students at French-language universities. Later in the summer we will have information on how you can volunteer to help out at the conference, and on free floorspace options.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at Leicester in January 2013!
