The call for papers is out for the 2016 meeting of the ASLH. It is being held in Toronto this year, and hosted by friends of the ANZLHS Jim Phillips and Phillip Girard. Although we did not send an official panel last year, we did have a panel of members: Amanda Nettelbeck, Alecia Simmonds, Diane Kirkby and Shaunnagh Dorsett. It was a very good conference and Amanda, Diane and I are intending to put in another panel proposal this year. It would be good to see more ANZ representation.
The date deadline for proposals is 15 March. While you can put up individual proposals, they really prefer panels with commentator and chair. Individual proposals rarely get accepted. Please note that this is not a swop year for the ANZLHS/ASLH.
