7th Annual Eastern Sierra History Conference

October 28-30, 2022

Call for Papers

The 7th Annual Eastern Sierra History Conference seeks to enhance awareness, enrich knowledge, and generate recognition of the diverse and complex heritage of the Eastern Sierra region. We are seeking presentations on the history and culture of the Eastern Sierra, the contiguous geographic areas of Inyo and Mono counties and nearby deserts, along with research that may have taken place outside of the region but is related to the history of the area. Selected presenters will have their papers published in the Eastern Sierra History Journal, a digital publication that is sponsored by ESIA and the Claremont Colleges.

This event will be a hybrid format, meaning attendees and speakers will be able to join us in person or virtually. The Conference will feature keynote speakers in the morning of Friday and Saturday. The morning session presenters will have 40 minutes to speak with 10 minutes for discussion. Afternoon session presenters will have 30 minutes to present with 10 minutes for discussion. Breakfast, lunch and light refreshments at breaks will be provided along with a dinner on Saturday evening for all speakers and conference attendees. ESIA will sell relevant books during the conference.

Please submit a maximum 250 words abstract along with a brief biographical statement to Jeff Gabriel, Executive Director, Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association, by Tuesday, May 31, 2021.

If you should have any questions, please contact Jeff Gabriel, Executive Director, , or by calling the phone number (785) 230-9396.
