The 47th Annual Conference of the ASPHS will take place on March 17-20, 2016 at The Maritime Museum of San Diego, 1492 Coast Boulevard, San Diego, California.
The keynote speaker will be Dennis Carr, Carolyn and Peter Lynch Curator of American Decorative Arts and Sculpture, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. His talk will be "From Manila to Mexico: Asia in the Americas, 1565-1815."
The ASPHS invites session proposals for panels and/or individual presentations on any aspect of Iberian history, art history, or literature. The typical panel will include three papers, a chairperson, and a discussant. In keeping with the Museum’s completion of the Galleon San Salvador (1542), we welcome proposals for papers and panels on Spain, Portugal, and the Sea, especially the Pacific. Proposals should include a 200-word abstract for each paper and a one-page curriculum vitae for each participant, including chairs and discussants. Please include each participant's name and e-mail address, along with any requests for audio/visual equipment or other special requirements.
The deadline for submissions is 1 November 2015. Participants in the conference must be members of the ASPHS. Graduate students presenting a paper for the first time at an ASPHS conference will receive a free membership for their first year, but must still submit the necessary paperwork. Please direct questions about membership to the General Secretary, A. Katie Harris (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Membership Secretary, Sandie Holguín (email@example.com) or see the membership page for more information.

These grants are competitive, not guaranteed. Applicants must be presenting their research (no chairs, respondents, or roundtable participants) and must submit a one-page curriculum vitae, a 100-word maximum statement of need, paper title and abstract.
