The family history/demography network of the Social Science History Association seeks panel, single-paper, and poster proposals for the 36th annual meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, 17-20 November 2011. A list of suggested panels can be found at the bottom of this email. As ever, papers and panels on themes not suggested below are also welcome.

You are welcome to submit papers regarding any of these topics, or on a topic relating to your own research. If you are interested in putting together an entire session, let us know and we would be happy to provide you with details as to how to do this. Feel free to forward this call widely.

Submissions are now being accepted at the SSHA website. Individuals may either login to submit a conference proposal directly or contact an organizer of one the suggested panels. Individuals that are new to SSHA will need to create an account. The deadline for submissions is 15 February, 2011.

The 2011 conference will be held in downtown Boston, at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel and Towers in Boston. The theme for this year’s conference is "Generation to Generation".
