THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF NEW MEXICO invites proposals for papers and presentations for the 2014 New Mexico History Conference, to be held on the campus of New Mexico Highlands University in historic Las Vegas, New Mexico, May 1-3, 2014.

Conference sessions are 1½ hours (ninety minutes) in length. Most sessions will consist of oral delivery of three papers or presentations, each approximately 20 minutes in length, along with the moderator's introduction and questions from the audience. Proposals for individual papers or presentations should be limited to one page in length, and must include presenter contact information, presentation title, a brief synopsis, a short biographical summary, and any technical support needed. Proposals for single presentations will be matched with similar topics to constitute a full session.

The Program Committee invites proposals for special topical sessions occupying the full 1½ hour period. Proposals for such sessions should include a proposed title for the session, names of presenters, titles of topics, a moderator, and contact information for all panel members.

Topics on any aspect of the history of New Mexico, the Southwest or Borderlands are welcome. However, individual topics and full sessions related to the personalities, settlement, development, and colorful history of Las Vegas and northeast New Mexico will be given special consideration.

Presenters must register as conference participants. Digital projection systems and other usual audiovisual presentation equipment will be available.

Deadline for submissions is September 30, 2013. Proposals may be submitted as attachments to email at or by mail to HSNM Program Committee, P.O. Box 1912, Santa Fe, NM 87504-1912.
