The graduate students of the History Department at the University of Colorado Boulder are pleased to announce the twenty-fourth annual Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference.

 

This academic conference provides an opportunity for students to present papers, gain experience in public speaking, and attend workshops on professional development and teaching.  First-time presenters are especially encouraged to participate.

 

This year’s conference will be the first in-person conference since 2019! It will be based around the theme of The Humanities and Arts in Global Perspective

Complete the submission form and upload a one-page abstract of the paper and a current CV (all files should be uploaded in .pdf). The abstract should clearly express an original argument rooted in extensive primary source research.

 

Papers that address these themes might include, but are not limited to, political, socioeconomic, or cultural questions,  transnational, comparative, or global histories, histories of art, music, or other cultural mediums.

 

This conference welcomes submissions with a historical element from graduate students working in any discipline. Exceptional undergraduate papers will be considered.  Past participants have come from fields as diverse as history, political science, economics, cultural studies, philosophy, comparative literature, sociology, film, art history, religious studies, anthropology, women’s and gender studies, geography, ethnic studies, and theater.

 

PRESENTATION DETAILS

Every paper will receive commentary by another graduate student, and a faculty member will moderate each panel session. Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session.

 

PRESENTATION REQUIREMENTS

Presentations will be strictly limited to 15 minutes, thus papers should be 8 pages in length, not including endnotes and bibliography.

 

There will be a small monetary award for the best conference paper.
