On behalf of the Labor Network of the Social Science History Association, we invite proposals for papers and complete panels for the 39th annual meeting of the Social Science History Association in Toronto, Ontario, November 6-9, 2014.  We also are looking for volunteers to serve as panel chairs and discussants. 

For more information on the meeting as well as the call for proposals, please refer to the SSHA website: www.ssha.org. Additionally, please note that the SSHA grants several awards and student travel grants, for which you also can apply. 

The deadline for paper and/or panel submissions is February 14th, 2014

The Social Science History Association Meeting provides a stimulating interdisciplinary venue for exploring an array of issues related to the study of social processes over time. This year's theme is Inequalities:  Politics, Policy and the Past

We welcome and encourage papers and panel proposals on a wide array of issues related to the historical study of labor and labor movements. Network members have expressed specific interest in organizing panels around the following themes:

  2. Workers in the Fast Food Industry (Jeremy Milloy, University of British Columbia organizer)
  3. Work and the Environment (Josiah Rector, Wayne State University, organizer)

Please use the SSHA's web conference management system to submit your papers and panel proposals. Paper title, brief abstract, and contact information should be submitted on the site http://conference.ssha.org/. (If you haven’t used the system previously you will need to create an account, which is a very simple process.)

The Labor Network Representatives are available to help you with any questions regarding the submission process. Thank you, and we look forward to a stimulating set of panels at this year's SSHA meeting.
