Hofstra University is pleased to announce that its 12th presidential conference, The George W. Bush Presidency, will take place March 24-26, 2015. Beginning in 1982 with an examination of the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Hofstra’s presidential conferences have brought together scholars, journalists, former government officials and, in some cases, the former presidents themselves to discuss the president’s campaign, political leadership, policy agenda, and legacy. The University has published proceedings from every conference, which have become standard scholarly volumes and serve as early oral histories of each presidency.
► For information on prior presidential conferences, please see www.hofstra.edu/presidential-conferences.
Papers will be selected for presentation at the conference as well as for potential publication based on the depth and originality of perspective on the subject. Previously published material will not be considered and should not be submitted.
A one-page abstract (500 words) and curriculum vitae should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 8, 2014.
The Hofstra conference committee will review paper proposals and announce accepted selections in spring 2014. Papers will be due in January 2015 and will be posted on the conference website for participants to review before the conference.
Papers should not exceed 20 double-spaced pages (approximately 6,000 words), excluding notes.
Conference participants will be expected to make their own travel, lodging, and meal arrangements for the conference. As the conference nears, Hofstra will identify local hotels that will provide discounted rooms for conference participants.
