CFP: Policy History Conference

The Policy History Conference is a great conference for legal historians.  It is smallish, with top scholars in a number of fields participating, and it is very substantive.  A great place for both junior and senior scholars, and especially good for those thinking across methodologies.  The conference is held every two years, with the next one coming up in June 2012.  Here are the details:
Since the first Policy History Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, the primary goal behind the conference has been to provide an interdisciplinary forum for scholars of policy history, American political development, and comparative historical analysis. Conferences bring together scholars from the disciplines of History, Political Science, Law, Sociology and other social sciences. Past conferences have included sessions on international and domestic policy issues from the eighteenth through the twenty-first centuries covering topics as widely variable as social policy, education, economics, trade, foreign affairs, immigration, gender, civil rights, and environmental policy.

The Journal of Policy History and the Institute for Political History are holding the seventh biennial Conference on Policy History at the Marriott-Downtown in Richmond, Virginia from June 6 to June 9, 2012.
