The 2013 Marianas History Conference, “One Archipelago, Many Stories: Integrating Our Narratives,” will be held in Guam on Aug. 30-31, 2013. Sponsored by the University of Guam Office of the President, the Northern Marianas Humanities Council, the Guam Preservation Trust, and Guampedia, this year's event follows on the heels of the highly successful 2012 Marianas History Conference on Saipan. Proceedings of that event are available online at guampedia.com.
The conference theme highlights the deep and rich history of the Mariana Islands, while also bridging the archipelago's political division dating to the late 1800s. Papers and posters may be submitted under the following general categories: Ancient History; Early Colonial (17th - 18th centuries); Late Colonial (19th - early 20th centuries) World War II; Recent (post-war); and Oral History and Genealogical Research.
Abstracts for papers and posters may be submitted at guampedia.com by April 3, 2013. The Guampedia website also accepts conference registration with an early registration fee of $25 or $10 for students with a valid ID. Due to limited seating, the number of registrants will be capped at 220, thus early registration is highly recommended. Late registration is $40.
