VHC 2019 CFP
Authors published in the 2017 proceedings issue will receive 2 copies by mail (or in person, if we are lucky to see you in Roanoke), and we will have copies available for a modest purchase price ($5) at the 2018 VHC meeting. These proceeds help us fund the conference, provide a record of our work, and advocate for the humanities, so we hope that you will take one home with you. You can also purchase a print copy here; an electronic version is coming soon.
