It is now time to consider the Presidency of George W. Bush.
Hofstra will host a conference on President G.W. Bush March 24-26, 2015. The call for papers for the conference is here. Abstracts for the conference are due in early January of this year.
There is no doubt that President Bush was a polarizing President. People either loved or disliked him. There wasn't much wriggle room. However, the conference is not about whether we liked or disliked him as a President. Instead, it is an academic conference to discuss and review the impact of his Presidency.
The conference organizer, Dr. Meena Bose, is open to a variety of ideas for paper topics. When I suggested that she include something on the issues of climate change, sustainability, energy, and science policy, she drafted me onto the committee to try to encourage submissions on these themes.
That is why I am posting this notice here. If you are interested in submitting an abstract for a paper on the Bush Presidency that could be presented at the conference, I encourage you to submit by the deadline which if fast approaching. Information on submission is here.
