The Society for U.S. Intellectual History has just announced the Call for Papers for the Fifth Annual Conference, Co-sponsored and hosted by the Center for the Humanities, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. It will be held (again) in New York City, November 1-2, 2012. Proposals due: June 1, 2012. All the details are here.
Highly recommended. This is a great, smallish conference, and for it's size gets rather outsized NYT coverage.
