Ethnohistory at 60: Looking Forward, Reflecting Back

The year 2014 marks an important date for the American Society for Ethnohistory as it represents the 60th anniversary of the first publication of the Society’s journal, Ethnohistory. Birthed from the Indian Claims Commissions of the 1940s and 1950s, the Society came together in 1954 to "promote the interdisciplinary investigation of the histories of the Native Peoples of the Americas,” and has grown from a small group of scholars to a thriving academic organization of over 1,200 members. Our conference theme this year poses the questions: How has the study of Ethnohistory changed over the previous six decades? What are the most vital issues Ethnohistorians face in the 21st century? And what lies ahead for ASE?

The 2014 annual meeting of the American Society for Ethnohistory represents an opportunity to reflect on the organization’s history, to examine how Ethnohistory has come to shape a multitude of disciplines including anthropology, linguistic studies, history, ecology, archaeology, and indigenous studies to name a few, to acknowledge exciting new directions in the field, and to think about the future.

We encourage panel and paper proposals that focus on some aspect of the history, legacy, and future of the Society and/or the practice of Ethnohistory, although any panel or paper on the topic of Ethnohistory will be considered. Deadlines and instructions for panel and paper proposals will be emailed to members and posted on the organization’s webpage as the conference nears.
