2022 Annual Conference | Bilbao, Spain

Humans have a unique relationship with distance, having used culture and technology to become a global species, dramatically compress time and space, and even reach into the cosmos. Yet as we strive to conquer distance, we have also frequently sought to create it: building walls, establishing borders, and creating ideologies that impose distances all their own. Similarly, while some communities in recent decades have come to enjoy unprecedented degrees of mobility, others have found their movement sharply curtailed by economic, cultural, and political forces.


Call for Proposals

The World History Association is seeking proposals for sessions and papers presenting original research and pedagogical techniques for this year's conference.  We welcome topics within the overarching theme of distance, mobility, and migration as well as other topics of interest to world historians.  Proposals from other fields in the humanities and social sciences that address global historical change are also encouraged.


For more details about this CFP and details on the various session formats, please visit the conference homepage.

To submit a proposal, complete a form on the conference homepage by November 30, 2021 to be considered for expidited review.  January 15, 2022 is the final deadline to submit a proposal.
