Migrations symposium in Eugene

Old Oregon Trail

Old Oregon Trail

The Oregon Historical Quarterly has issued a call for papers for its Oregon Migrations Symposium set for November 2016 in Eugene. The theme question: “How have relationships among inhabitants and newcomers changed Oregon and each other?”

“Migration has been central to life in Oregon for thousands of years,” says the CFP, “and has become especially poignant since non-Native people began resettling here during the 1830s and 1840s.”

The symposium is being organized by the OHQ in collaboration with PNLHA Oregon trustee Bob Bussel, director of the Labor Education and Research Center, and Dr. Dan Tichenor, Senior Scholar at the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics. Both are based at the University of Oregon in Eugene.

Proposals of 500 words or less in PDF format should be emailed to OHQ editor Eliza E. Canty-Jones, also a PNLHA member, at eliza.canty-jones@ohs.org. Include a CV or short biographical note. Deadline: midnight, Dec. 1, 2015.
