I am a professor of history and wishlist member for over four years. At my university, the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru, started in the 90s, the interest in the use of computer in research and teaching of history and still at it. I am very interested in the scheduled event in Lima in April 2014. I will appreciate greatly I can provide more information than is available on the Web today. Count on my support from here. Currently I am the Director of the Research Management at my university, and Professor of History of Contemporary Peru (twentieth century).

Dr. Chavez,

Thanks for your interest! I've forwarded your message to the conference organizers.




Is there a request for proposals for the Lima Conference?


Brian Goldfarb, UCSD


One is currently under development. It should be released in the next few weeks - stay tuned! 


The conference is still being planned right now, but the planning committee is definitely aware of the potential cost of travel for many and is planning to do as much as it can to alleviate costs.


I was selected at the last HASTAC conference too but there was no travel support for international students. Is there a provision this time?


Just wondering when is the deadline for submitting the proposals for the conference in Peru? Thanks!



The deadline is Nov. 30 at 5 pm ET. You can find the CFP and more information about the conference at
