Click here for the 2015 introductory post about topic proposals. Here’s an excerpt:

We hope that the topic proposal option will connect people interested in similar ideas and themes early in the process. The joint program committee will continue to accept individual paper submissions, but we hope that presenters who have great ideas and a project to present will use the topic proposal to meet like-minded people interested in joining forces and, subsequently, submit a proposal for a panel or other complete session format.

We also hope that the topic proposal will give people new to NCPH and SHFG meetings an opportunity to get feedback in time to revise and refine their proposals before submitting a final version and to find co-presenters doing similar work. By nurturing these new voices, we can strengthen the conference program and learn about emerging projects, research, and perspectives. We also hope to see sessions that include presenters representing both NCPH and SHFG.
