Missouri Valley History Conference
2019 CFP: Human & Civil Rights Throughout History
62nd Missouri Valley History Conference
Magnolia Hotel - 1615 Howard Street - Omaha, NE
February 28-March 2, 2019
In 1948 the United Nations in Paris, France passed a resolution known as "The Universal Declaration of Human Rights"--the most translated document in the world. Well before the passage of this critical document, historic events around the globe were filled with examples of ordinary and extraordinary individuals who strove for freedom of expression, the abolition of slavery, equality, Indigenous sovereignty, and the right to education. These issues are further complicated by issues of environmental injustice, war, voting, nationalism, ethnicity, religion, race, sexuality, and gender. The 2019 Missouri Valley History Conference invites historical papers that explore how colonization, imperialism, empires, and the rise of nation-states have impacted global human and civil rights throughout history. The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2018. This year’s Missouri Valley History Conference Call for Papers highlights this significant world history theme.
