2001 Indiana University-Bloomington
History Graduate Student Association Conference
Saturday, March 31, 2001
The Indiana University-Bloomington History Graduate Student Association
invites proposals from graduate students in history and related fields for its annual History Conference. The conference is a one-day affair
scheduled for Saturday, March 31, 2001, on the beautiful campus of Indiana University at Bloomington.
We seek papers that address our theme: "Bounds of History, Possibilities of Scholarship." What are the limits of history as a field of inquiry and analysis, and how does current graduate scholarship probe and push those limits? How do related fields work with and beyond the limits of history to inform this field? How does current scholarship and research explore new possibilities of analysis and synthesis? All proposals are enthusiastically welcomed, as the conference seeks to draw out these larger questions by bringing together graduate students engaged in research within a broad array of fields and disciplines. We ask for proposals from different historical eras and geographic areas, as well as from other fields and disciplines (including, but not limited to, sociology, gender studies, anthropology, literature). Participants are encouraged also to submit their own panel proposals to address specific issues.
Keeping with the theme, the conference will include a unique panel on scholarship at the turn of the century. "Trends in
Scholarship," will address the latest developments in history and related fields, including but not limited to cultural studies, theory, museum studies, and interdisciplinary studies.
Professor Daniel Walker, Indiana University, will be the keynote speaker at the luncheon.
The deadline for paper abstracts is Friday, February 9, 2001.
Abstracts should discuss the paper's thesis, conclusions, and sources in 350 words or less.
