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.
