This email serves as a reminder to submit panel proposals to the American
Historical Association's annual conference for 2015 - the deadline is Feb.
15, 2014. The link is here:
http://www.historians.org/publications-and-directories/perspectives-on-h...
[1].

As we discussed in the SAHSA business meeting in D.C. earlier this year,
marking regional affiliation on a proposal does not improve the chances of a
proposal being accepted by the Program Committee of the AHA. The designation
of having affiliate approval simply marks panels out for the purpose of
enumerating submissions according to world regions.

After the review of proposals has been finished, the AHA program committee
will send SAHSA a list of those panels about South Asia not accepted by the
main program committee. This should happen by early June. We then have a
choice to list those not accepted as SAHSA-only panels, but at our own cost,
as we must then pay for those listings in the program.

A South Asian historian is on the AHA program committee this year and so
South Asia-focused panels will likely be given a serious look. But regional
affiliation will do nothing to increase the likelihood of acceptance - the
most important criteria for inclusion is broad appeal,
comparative/trans-national or trans-regional topics, and the ability to speak
to as large an audience base as possible. One particular approach that may
apply to many prospective panelists is the inclusion of a non-South Asianist
discussant responding to a group of papers about South Asia.

Also, please note that we are planning a SAHSA panel to discuss A. Azfar
Moin’s The Millennial Sovereign: Sacred Kingship and Sainthood in Islam
(Columbia, 2012), which was awarded the John Richards Prize for 2013.
Additionally, we plan to co-sponsor the Committee on Asian Historians
luncheon, hold a business meeting, and host a reception on the Saturday
evening of the conference in 2015.

Our first priority includes encouraging all interested parties to submit
proposals for the 2015 AHA meeting. Soon after the Feb. 15th deadline, we
will work toward updating our membership database, website, and fee
structure. The latter point is particularly important, given that SAHSA has a
number of expenses it must meet in order to keep the organization alive.
Please stay tuned for emails about all those topics.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us regarding questions about AHA
submission policies or to share your ideas, suggestions, and concerns of how
SAHSA can serve our needs in the profession.

Dear SAHSA Members,

Greetings from North Texas! I am very pleased to be serving as President for
the Society for Advancing the History of South Asia in 2014. The current
leadership of SAHSA has shifted over the last year, from New York State and
Indiana to Texas and Illinois: I am delighted to be joined by John Pincince
of Loyola University Chicago, who is currently serving as Vice-President and
will be SAHSA’s President for 2015. John and I are indebted to all the hard
work of the past to get SAHSA off the ground, and are particularly thankful
for the mentorship of past Presidents Anne Hardgrove, Michael Dodson, and
Lisa Trivedi, as well as Mrinalini Sinha, who have all offered guidance and
institutional memory as we pick up the reins. But we have not left the north
and east completely behind: We are joined by Faisal Chaudhry of the
University of Pennsylvania, who has resumed the position of
Secretary-Treasurer for 2014.

This past AHA in Washington, D.C. was a great success for getting South Asia
on the AHA Program. SAHSA’s Annual Business Meeting, Drinks Reception, and
SAHSA-CAH (Conference on Asian History) luncheon were all well-attended.
SAHSA sponsored/co-sponsored nine panels about South Asian history, in
addition to the second annual John Richard Book Prize discussion. This
discussion featured the second John Richards prize-winning book, Douglas
Haynes’ Small Town Capitalism in Western India: Artisans, Merchants and the
Making of the Informal Economy, 1870-1960 (Cambridge, 2012).

For AHA 2015 in New York City, we are planning a SAHSA panel to discuss A.
Azfar Moin’s The Millennial Sovereign: Sacred Kingship and Sainthood in
Islam (Columbia, 2012), which was awarded the John Richards Prize for 2013.
Congratulations to Azfar for his well-deserved prize! In addition to the
SAHSA business meeting at AHA, John and I hope to host a reception for SAHSA
members and friends. Last year we had a hotel suite and we are looking into
some off-site locations.

In order to help keep the South Asia history momentum rolling forward, we
encourage members to propose a panel for the 2015 program, due Feb. 15th,
2014. AHA offers a variety of formats and welcomes new kinds of sessions into
the mix. In particular, the AHA welcomes comparative panels and topics with
broad appeal to the largest audience possible. Below you will see details
about AHA submissions along with strategies for submissions.

In order to sustain the activities we have planned for 2015, we have
discussed three particular issues regarding SAHSA's future. First, we plan to
institute a modest membership fee. While we understand that many members will
already be paying several fees for professional association memberships, we
will have to rely on your support once more in the months to come in order to
maintain a sustainable organization. Please expect further communications
about this later in the spring. Second, we will design and execute a new
iteration of our website, to be hosted at H-NET. Third, we will complete our
registration as a not-for-profit organization.

Our first priority includes encouraging all South Asianists to submit
proposals for the 2015 AHA meeting. After the Feb. 15th deadline, we will
work toward updating our membership database, website, and fee structure.
Please stay tuned for emails about all those topics.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us to share your ideas,
suggestions, and concerns of how SAHSA can serve our needs in the profession.
We’re really happy to be part of such a useful and important group.

The 129th annual meeting of the American Historical Association will be held
on January 2–5, 2015, in New York City. The Program Committee welcomes
proposals from all members of the Association, whatever their institutional
affiliation or status, as well as from affiliated societies, historians
working outside the United States, and scholars in related disciplines. The
theme for the meeting, described in greater detail on the following pages, is
"History and the Other Disciplines." While seeking proposals for sessions
that explore facets of this broad theme, we also welcome submissions on the
histories of all places and periods, on many different topics, on the uses of
varied sources and methods, and on theory and the uses of history itself. We
also invite members to employ and analyze diverse strategies for representing
the past, including fiction, poetry, film, music, and art. The AHA is a
capacious organization, unique among learned societies in its devotion to the
full range of historical scholarship and practice. We hope that our program
will reflect this strength, and to this end, we will seriously consider any
proposal that advances the study, teaching, and public presentation of
history.

The 2015 annual meeting will also continue the discussions, launched at the
2012 meeting in Chicago, of the ways that historical practice is changing as
a result of the ongoing digital revolution. We thus invite proposals on what
it means to practice history in this digital age, and what new technologies
imply for how we do research, how we present our findings, and how we
interact with a variety of current and potential audiences. We welcome
proposals that focus not only on cutting-edge "digital history," but also on
the broad implications of digital technologies for all historical
practitioners.

We invite proposals for sessions in four different formats: formal sessions
(paper presentations plus comment), practicums, roundtable discussions, and
thematic workshops. Individuals or small groups may also propose the
presentation of posters as part of a poster session, to be held on Saturday
afternoon, in which historians will share their research through visual
materials. Finally, members are encouraged to propose experimental sessions
(see Debbie Ann Doyle's article) using creative forms of presentation not
covered by these standard session types. Please consider choosing a session
format that will most effectively achieve your intellectual goals, and will
best foster lively interaction among presenters and between presenters and
the audience. We also offer 90-minute sessions as well as the usual two-hour
slots. To assure substantial time for interaction between speakers and
audience, all panels, regardless of format, are limited to a maximum of five
participants serving as speakers or commentators; 90-minute sessions should
have fewer speakers.

Please consult the "Annual Meeting Guidelines" when preparing your proposal.
Note that the Association encourages the representation of the full diversity
of its membership in the annual meeting. Successful sessions will reflect, to
the extent possible, institutional and career stage diversity as well as
gender and ethnic diversity. Proposals for panels that do not include such
diversity may need to be revised and resubmitted. Please note also that
proposals for individual presentations can be submitted only as posters;
single paper proposals will not be considered for any other type of session
(see guideline 4.2.E.).
Proposals must be submitted electronically. Full instructions for doing so
can be found at "Instructions for Submitting Proposals." With the exception
of foreign scholars and scholars from other disciplines, all persons
appearing on the program must be members of the AHA. Proposals must be
submitted in their completed form (that is, with full information concerning
all participants and their presentations) by midnight, Pacific Standard Time,
on February 15, 2014. Proposals cannot be submitted after the deadline has
passed; the system will be closed to submissions and will not accept them.

Questions about the content of proposals should be directed to the Program
Committee co-chairs Francesca Trivellato and Andrew Sartori. Questions about
policies, modes of presentation, and the electronic submissions process
should be directed to the 2015 Program Committee.

—Jan E. Goldstein (Univ. of Chicago) is the president-elect of the AHA; she
will be presiding over the 129th annual meeting. Francesca Trivellato (Yale
Univ.) is the chair and Andrew S. Sartori (New York Univ.) is the co-chair of
the 2015 Program Committee.

We hope that our program will reflect this strength, and to this end, we will seriously consider any proposal that advances the study, teaching, and public presentation of history.
The 2015 annual meeting will also continue the discussions, launched at the 2012 meeting in Chicago, of the ways that historical practice is changing as a result of the ongoing digital revolution. We thus invite proposals on what it means to practice history in this digital age, and what new technologies imply for how we do research, how we present our findings, and how we interact with a variety of current and potential audiences. We welcome proposals that focus not only on cutting-edge "digital history," but also on the broad implications of digital technologies for all historical practitioners.
We invite proposals for sessions in four different formats: formal sessions (paper presentations plus comment), practicums, roundtable discussions, and thematic workshops. Individuals or small groups may also propose the presentation of posters as part of a poster session, to be held on Saturday afternoon, in which historians will share their research through visual materials. Finally, members are encouraged to propose experimental sessions (see Debbie Ann Doyle's article) using creative forms of presentation not covered by these standard session types. Please consider choosing a session format that will most effectively achieve your intellectual goals, and will best foster lively interaction among presenters and between presenters and the audience. We also offer 90-minute sessions as well as the usual two-hour slots. To assure substantial time for interaction between speakers and audience, all panels, regardless of format, are limited to a maximum of five participants serving as speakers or commentators; 90-minute sessions should have fewer speakers.
Please consult the "Annual Meeting Guidelines" when preparing your proposal. Note that the Association encourages the representation of the full diversity of its membership in the annual meeting. Successful sessions will reflect, to the extent possible, institutional and career stage diversity as well as gender and ethnic diversity. Proposals for panels that do not include such diversity may need to be revised and resubmitted. Please note also that proposals for individual presentations can be submitted only as posters; single paper proposals will not be considered for any other type of session (see guideline 4.2.E.).
Proposals must be submitted electronically. Full instructions for doing so can be found at "Instructions for Submitting Proposals." With the exception of foreign scholars and scholars from other disciplines, all persons appearing on the program must be members of the AHA. Proposals must be submitted in their completed form (that is, with full information concerning all participants and their presentations) by midnight, Pacific Standard Time, on February 15, 2014. Proposals cannot be submitted after the deadline has passed; the system will be closed to submissions and will not accept them.
Questions about the content of proposals should be directed to the Program Committee co-chairs Francesca Trivellato and Andrew Sartori. Questions about policies, modes of presentation, and the electronic submissions process should be directed to the 2015 Program Committee.
—Jan E. Goldstein (Univ. of Chicago) is the president-elect of the AHA; she will be presiding over the 129th annual meeting. Francesca Trivellato (Yale Univ.) is the chair and Andrew S. Sartori (New York Univ.) is the co-chair of the 2015 Program Committee.

19 January 2014
Dear SAHSA Members,
Greetings from North Texas!   I am very pleased to be serving as President for the Society for Advancing the History of South Asia in 2014.   The current leadership of SAHSA has shifted over the last year, from New York State and Indiana to Texas and Illinois:  I am delighted to be joined by John Pincince of Loyola University Chicago, who is currently serving as Vice-President and will be SAHSA’s President for 2015.   John and I are indebted to all the hard work of the past to get SAHSA off the ground, and are particularly thankful for the mentorship of Past-Presidents Anne Hardgrove, Michael Dodson, and Lisa Trivedi, as well as Mrinalini Sinha, who have all offered guidance and institutional memory as we pick up the reins.   But we have not left the north and east completely behind:  We are joined by Faisal Chaudhry of the University of Pennsylvania, who has resumed the position of Secretary-Treasurer for 2014. 
           
This past AHA in Washington, D.C. was a great success for getting South Asia on the AHA Program.  SAHSA’s Annual Business Meeting, Drinks Reception, and SAHSA-CAH (Conference on Asian History) luncheon were all well-attended.   SAHSA sponsored/co-sponsored nine panels about South Asian history, in addition to the second annual John Richard Book Prize discussion, where we discussed the second John Richards prize-winning book, Douglas Haynes’ Small Town Capitalism in Western India: Artisans, Merchants and the Making of the Informal Economy, 1870-1960 (Cambridge, 2012). 
For AHA 2015 in New York City, we are planning a SAHSA panel to discuss A. Azfar Moin’s The Millennial Sovereign: Sacred Kingship and Sainthood in Islam (Columbia, 2012), which was awarded the John Richards Prize for 2013.   Congratulations to Azfar for his well-deserved prize!    In addition, along with the SAHSA business meeting at AHA, John and I hope to host a reception for SAHSA members and friends.  Last year we had a hotel suite and we are looking into some off-site locations. 
 
In order to help keep the South Asia history momentum rolling forward, we encourage members to propose a panel for the 2015 program, due Feb. 15th, 2014.   AHA offers a variety of formats and welcomes new kinds of sessions into the mix.  In particular, the AHA welcomes comparative panels and topics with broad appeal to the largest audience possible.   Below you will see details about AHA submissions along with strategies for submissions.
To sustain the activities we have planned for 2015, we have discussed instituting a modest membership fee. While we understand that many members will already be paying several fees for professional association memberships, we will have to rely on your support once more in the months to come. Please expect another communication about this later in the spring. Second, we will design and execute a new iteration of our website, to be hosted at H-NET. Third, we will complete our registration as a not-for-profit organization.
Our first priority includes encouraging all South Asianists to submit proposals for the 2015 AHA meeting. After the Feb. 15th deadline, we will work toward updating our membership database, website, and fee structure. Please stay tuned for emails about all those topics.
 
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us to share your ideas, suggestions, and concerns of how SAHSA can serve our needs in the profession.   We’re really happy to be part of such a useful and important group.
 
Warm regards,
 
Neilesh Bose, President 2014,  neilesh.bose@unt.edu

http://www.historians.org/publications-and-directories/perspectives-on-history/september-2013/call-for-proposals-for-the-129th-annual-meeting-of-the-aha
The 129th annual meeting of the American Historical Association will be held on January 2–5, 2015, in New York City. The Program Committee welcomes proposals from all members of the Association, whatever their institutional affiliation or status, as well as from affiliated societies, historians working outside the United States, and scholars in related disciplines. The theme for the meeting, described in greater detail on the following pages, is "History and the Other Disciplines." While seeking proposals for sessions that explore facets of this broad theme, we also welcome submissions on the histories of all places and periods, on many different topics, on the uses of varied sources and methods, and on theory and the uses of history itself. We also invite members to employ and analyze diverse strategies for representing the past, including fiction, poetry, film, music, and art. The AHA is a capacious organization, unique among learned societies in its devotion to the full range of historical scholarship and practice. We hope that our program will reflect this strength, and to this end, we will seriously consider any proposal that advances the study, teaching, and public presentation of history.

Dear SAHSA Members,

Greetings from snowy DC! Hope everyone's travels are going OK.

The reception for our organization will be SATURDAY from 5:30 pm onwards.
Please come on by after the business meeting and/or the film. We should be
there until at least 8:30 pm, and perhaps longer! The suite is Marriott Room
7022. Cash or check contributions to help cover food and drink costs are
appreciated.

Please note that AHA' s printed booklet correctly lists the reception as
taking place on Saturday. However, I noticed that AHA' s App lists the
incorrect day of Friday. Just ignore that!

Look forward to seeing everyone and hearing some great papers.

Happy New Year!!

Anne Hardgrove and Neilesh Bose

Busboys & Poets Presents:
Bengali Harlem and the Lost Histories of South Asian America
Reading and Conversation with Author and Filmmaker Vivek Bald

Friday January 03, 2014
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
@ Busboys & Poets
14th & V | Langston Room
Washington, DC

Co-Sponsored by SAALT (South Asian Americans Leading Together), Kahani, and
Teaching for Change

In the final years of the nineteenth century, small groups of Muslim peddlers
arrived at Ellis Island every summer, bags heavy with embroidered silks from
their home villages in Bengal. The American demand for “Oriental goods”
took these migrants on a curious path, from New Jersey’s beach boardwalks
into the heart of the segregated South. Two decades later, hundreds of Indian
Muslim seamen began jumping ship in New York and Baltimore, escaping the
engine rooms of British steamers to find less brutal work onshore. As factory
owners sought their labor and anti-Asian immigration laws closed in around
them, these men built clandestine networks that stretched from the
northeastern waterfront across the industrial Midwest.

The stories of these early working-class migrants vividly contrast with our
typical understanding of immigration. Vivek Bald’s meticulous
reconstruction reveals a lost history of South Asian sojourning and
life-making in the United States. At a time when Asian immigrants were
vilified and criminalized, Bengali Muslims quietly became part of some of
America’s most iconic neighborhoods of color, from Tremé in New Orleans to
Detroit’s Black Bottom, from West Baltimore to Harlem. Many started
families with Creole, Puerto Rican, and African American women.

As steel and auto workers in the Midwest, as traders in the South, and as
halal hot dog vendors on 125th Street, these immigrants created lives as
remarkable as they are unknown. Their stories of ingenuity and intermixture
challenge assumptions about assimilation and reveal cross-racial affinities
beneath the surface of early twentieth-century America.

Peepli Live
(film)
Saturday, January 4, 2014: 5:00 PM-7:00 PM Delaware Suite (Marriott Wardman
Park)
Lobby Level
Anusha Rizvi, writer and director, Aamir Kahan and Kiran Rao, producers,
Mahmood Farooqui, co-director (Aamir
Khan Productions, UTV, 2010) Peepli Live is a feature film that examines the
topic of “farmer suicides” in India.
The film tells the story of two brothers who are bankrupt. A local
moneylender suggests that one of brothers should commit suicide in order to
qualify for a government assistance program set up to pay families only after
a suicide. The government subsidy will help save the family farm, but the
question is which brother will end his life for the sake of the rest of the
family? As the brothers attempt to sort out this conundrum, the local
newspaper starts covering the story of the brothers’ dilemma. Through
social media, the news item spreads nationally and becomes a media sensation.
The resolution of the brothers’ problem is an indictment of the nature of
the culture of late capitalism in a postcolonial context. Further, Rizvi’s
film provides an important critique of state policies and the role of new
media in India today.

Rajit Mazumder, DePaul University, will introduce the film and lead a
discussion afterward.

Peepli Live
(film)
Saturday, January 4, 2014: 5:00 PM-7:00 PM Delaware Suite (Marriott Wardman Park)
Lobby Level
Anusha Rizvi, writer and director, Aamir Kahan and Kiran Rao, producers, Mahmood Farooqui, co-director (Aamir
Khan Productions, UTV, 2010) Peepli Live is a feature film that examines the topic of “farmer suicides” in India.
The film tells the story of two brothers who are bankrupt. A local moneylender suggests that one of brothers should commit suicide in order to qualify for a government assistance program set up to pay families only after a suicide. The government subsidy will help save the family farm, but the question is which brother will end his life for the sake of the rest of the family? As the brothers attempt to sort out this conundrum, the local newspaper starts covering the story of the brothers’ dilemma. Through social media, the news item spreads nationally and becomes a media sensation. The resolution of the brothers’ problem is an indictment of the
nature of the culture of late capitalism in a postcolonial context. Further, Rizvi’s film provides an important critique of state policies and the role of new media in India today.
Rajit Mazumder, DePaul University, will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterward.

Dear SAHSA Members,

I am writing to let everyone know that SAHSA is currently accepting
nominations for Vice President of SAHSA for 2013-14.

The VP works under the President of SAHSA for one year, and then becomes the
President of the organization the following year. The duties include working
closely with the American Historical Association to, well, advance the
history of South Asia. Officers of SAHSA are expected to be members of the
AHA and be able to attend the Annual Meetings, in NYC (2015) and Atlanta
(2016). Please consider self-nominating or sending a suggestion of a
candidate with his/her contact details. If I could hear back by Wednesday,
Nov 20th, that would be fantastic. You can reach me by email:
anne.hardgrove@utsa.edu [1] or by text: 210-710-7108.

On that note, it's not too early to begin planning panels for the AHA
meetings in NY. The meeting theme is "History and the Other Disciplines" and
the deadline for panels is February 15th, 2014.

We have an excellent line-up of panels at the 2014 AHA which meets Jan 2-5 in
DC, including a cocktail party on the evening of Saturday, Jan 4th. I'll send
out a schedule shortly. Hope that everyone's well and hope to see you in
January!

best regards,
Anne
