Today's graduate students are changing the future of the past. In celebration of their role in developing the enormous potential which the study of history offers to the new millennium, the Graduate Historical Society of Dalhousie University invites other MA and Ph.D. students in the Humanities and Social Sciences to submit abstracts for an upcoming Graduate Student Conference entitled "History Across the Disciplines: The Future of the Past."
With particular emphasis upon interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches to the study of the past, as well as novel or experimental methodologies, this conference will explore the new forms of scholarship that our generation will develop and employ in the new millennium. There are no geographical or chronological restrictions, and all historically focussed subject areas are welcome. Papers are not restricted to, but might include the use of innovative approaches to existing source materials, new historiographic structures, or new sources and technologies. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for graduate students to present their work to an audience of their peers, and to meet other students from around the world who are involved in similar research areas.
The conference will be held on Saturday, March 25th, and Sunday March 26th, 2000, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Those interested should submit a one page abstract and contact information to the address below by 31 January 2000.
