DEADLINE: OCTOBER 1, 2016

 

We are considering proposals for individual papers and for sessions organized around a theme and/or special panels. Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with four papers or speakers per standard session. Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes. Topics for presentations can be any and all things “Baby Boomer-related.” In particular, 2017 marks 50 years since the 1967 “Summer of Love,” and we would welcome papers related to the emergence of the counter-culture and other social movements and popular culture happenings from that memorable time period.
