CALL FOR PAPERS – deadline November 29, 2012
The PhD Program in History is pleased to announce the third annual Graduate Student Conference, scheduled for Friday, March 15, 2013.
The purpose of this conference is twofold. First, we aim to provide an introduction for our graduate students to major debates in various areas of study. Second, we seek to build community and dialogue within the department between students in the different major fields.
To that end, we are seeking proposals for 10-12 page papers on any historical or historiographical topic in any time period. Some examples include: presentation of original research (such as seminar papers), overviews of proposed research, interpretive essays on recent scholarship, critical accounts of ‘classic’ secondary sources, and papers on methodological issues. We especially encourage students in the literature surveys, many of which require historiographical essays, to submit proposals.
We also urge students to submit proposals for panels of 3 papers, either on traditional topics (such as a panel looking at three different aspects of Civil War) or those that cut across periodizations and fields (for example, a panel on decolonization with papers focusing on Europe, Asia, and Latin America).
Interested students should submit a 250-word abstract and curriculum vitae by November 29, 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Students who have papers accepted will be notified by the conference organizing committee by mid-December.
