What Is the Conference?
The Conference on New York State History is an annual meeting of academic and public historians, librarians and archivists, educators, publishers, and other interested individuals who come together to discuss topics and issues related to the people of New York State in historical perspective and to share information and ideas regarding historical research, programming, and the networking of resources and services.

Presentation formats may include:
• Presentation sessions (Chair and 3 presenters; 75 minutes)
• Panel/Roundtable discussion sessions (Chair/Moderator and 3–4 panelists; 75 minutes)
• Workshops and practical sessions (workshops 3–5 hours; practical sessions 75 minutes)
• Individual presentations (25 minutes)
Preference will be given to full session proposals. We encourage presenters to take a dynamic approach, including
the use of visual and audio aids, audience participation, and discussions, rather than solely reading a paper.
