The World History Association (WHA) is holding its 25th Annual Conference in Ghent, Belgium, from July 2-5, 2016. The themes of the conference will be ‘Global Conflict’ and ‘Transformation of the Global Countryside’. The WHA is calling for paper proposals from students, scholars and teachers from around the world on topics related to the scholarly or pedagogical aspects of the conference’s themes.

Prearranged (organized) panels/roundtables/workshops are given priority in the program and receive earlier notification of acceptance. Individual papers will also be considered. The WHA is an interdisciplinary organization that seeks to create conversations about scholarship and teaching within and outside the field of history. Work in Anthropology, Political Science, Literature, Art, and other Humanities and Social Sciences is welcomed and encouraged.

The submission deadline for paper proposals is November 20, 2015.
