Application Instructions 

There are THREE WAYS to participate in the 2018 ACH Conference.

PAPER:  You can apply to present an individual paper.  These applications are reviewed by the Executive Committee by theme and composed into panels.  This requires:

PANEL:  You can also apply as part of a panel of 3 or 4 papers.  This requires:

POSTER:  You can apply to participate in our poster session.  This is intended as a fast-paced, fun session for newer scholars or for those embarking on a new project.  This requires:

While cover forms and CVs can be submitted in one language, it is very important that abstracts be translated into all three languages at the time of submission as the committee reviewing proposals is multi-lingual.  Applications that do not include abstracts in English, Spanish, and French will not be considered, and all materials, including translations, are due by the application deadline of October 15, 2017.

A few more important notes:

If, after your proposal has been accepted, you find you are unable to attend, please inform the ACH Conference Coordinator as soon as possible in order to allow us to adjust the programme.  All proposals for the 2018 ACH Conference, with translated abstracts and CVs combined into one Microsoft Word file, should be sent by email to: 

Gelien Matthews, Conference Coordinator, Association of Caribbean Historians:achconference@gmail.com. 

The deadline for proposals is October 15, 2017.  We look forward to your submissions.

PLEASE NOTE: While the ACH tries to include as much good scholarship as possible, the cost of simultaneous translation of all sessions into English, Spanish and French restricts us to one panel at a time.  Because we can accommodate only a limited number of speakers each year, proposals from those who did not present in the immediate year prior will be given priority.
