The Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations
2007 Annual Meeting
June 26, 2007
On behalf of the Program Committee (Clea Bunch, Dave Engerman, and Katie Sibley), we, the Co-Chairs of the 2007 Program Committee, warmly invite you to attend the conference this June.
This year, SHAFR breaks its thirty-two year tradition of holding its annual meeting at a university. Instead, the 2007 meeting will take place at the Westfields Marriott Conference Center in Chantilly, Virginia. All conference events will take place in the Westfields hotel. You can find all the relevant information on registration, lodging, and transportation on this website.
The Program Committee expects to have a splendid conference. Because we had an overwhelming number of submissions of panels and papers, the Committee increased the number of sessions to 54 from our usual 48. The Committee proudly notes that approximately 60 of this year’s participants reside outside the United States. This befits the increasing international nature of our membership and profession.
The conference opens with a luncheon beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, 21 June. Our concluding panels will be from 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, 23 June.
Friday and Saturday nights are free for excursions into Washington. Many of us intend to take in a baseball game (Washington Nationals).
The Program Committee recommends all 54 of the sessions. But there a few sessions the Committee would like to highlight.
Finally, the Co-Chairs, who have attended most SHAFR Conferences and availed themselves of the pleasures of staying in the various university residences are hard at work on their presentation, “Dorm Rooms, Cafeterias, and Low-Rent Hotels We Have Known.”
