Call for Papers

2022 Annual Meeting

Louisiana Historical Association – 64th Annual Meeting

March 17-19, 2022 – Baton Rouge, LA

The 2022 LHA Program Committee invites sessions on any aspect of Louisiana History from any era, and is open to submissions that take unique approaches to session design as well as traditional scholarly panels.  Graduate students, archivists, and other public historians, such as curators and preservationists, are likewise strongly encouraged to participate. We prefer to receive proposals for complete 75-90 minute sessions but will also consider individual paper proposals as well. In addition, we ask that all participants register for the annual meeting and encourage them to join the association formally.


Proposals should be submitted in a single Microsoft Word (.docx) or PDF format file and include:

1. A cover sheet with the session title as well as the names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses of all participants, including the chair and commentator.

2. A one-page summary of the focus and intent of the session.

3. A one-page abstract for each paper or presentation.

4. A one-page curriculum vitae for each participant.

5. A specified preference for any electronic equipment required for presentations. Although projectors and screens will be available, there is no guarantee that these will preform optimally with presenters’ computers and PowerPoint presentation. Moreover, access to projecting equipment is limited and may not actually be available to all that request it. Therefore, presenters are strongly encouraged to bring their own electronic equipment.

Deadline for submissions is September 15, 2021

All materials are to be emailed to LHA Program Committee Chairperson Karen Leathem at [email protected] and include the name, affiliation, and email address of the proposal organizer in the body of your message.
