The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) will present its 2016 annual meeting in Detroit, MI, from September 14-17, in partnership with the Michigan Museums Association, and is seeking session proposals for the meeting.

The Program Committee seeks proposals that:
• Explore challenges faced by history professionals, including but not limited to: shifts in national and local demographics, economic downturn, financial pressures, and distracted audiences.
• Illustrate attempts – both successful and less than successful – to react to those contextual changes
• Illustrate attempts – both successful and less than successful – to proactively address pending contextual changes
• Demonstrate the value of understanding the past (societal, institutional, programmatic) in choosing a course for the future
• Consider the use and value of public history in modern national discourse
• Document innovative models, approaches, partnerships
• Assess honestly and critically the failure of outdated models; suggests new approaches to common problems; and/or affirms the effectiveness of traditional tactics

Proposals are submitted online and are due December 7. Contact Bethany Hawkins with any questions at hawkins@aaslh.org or 615-320-3203.
