The Association for African American Historical Research and Preservation (AAAHRP) is accepting proposals for individual papers, panels, and workshops for its 2009 Biennial Black History Conference. The conference is scheduled to be held on Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22, 2009 in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. The Theme of the conference is "Black History: Full Disclosure." Participants are encouraged to present papers, introduce original documentaries, form panels, and conduct workshops.

Scholars, professional and avocational historians, genealogists, librarians, archivists, authors, and graduate students from the United States and other countries are encouraged to submit proposals based on previously unreported or underreported black history and culture. Individuals engaged in the preservation of black history at historic sites, museums, or historical societies are also encouraged to submit proposals. In addition to African American history, proposals within the realm of the African Diaspora that include Africans in Europe, Africans in Canada, Africans in the Caribbean, and Africans in Central and South America are of particularly interest to the AAAHRP Conference Committee.

Abstracts should not exceed 300 words. Your abstract should include the presentation title, your title and name, affiliation, mailing address, country, contact phone number and e-mail address. The abstract should be sent with your proposal to the conference committee at AAAHRP2009Conference@comcast.net. The deadline for proposals and abstracts is October 31, 2008. All submissions must be in English. For additional conference details, send your inquiries to the same e-mail address.
