The 36th Northern Great Plains History Conference:
The 1st Conference of the New Millennium
October 10-13, 2001
Holiday Inn and Ramada Inn
Grand Forks, North Dakota
Hosted by the Department of History, University of North Dakota
Proposals for papers or sessions in any area of history or history-related
subjects are welcome.
The organizers of this year's NGPHC are actively seeking sessions sponsored
by as diverse a group of historians as possible (nascent labour, oral,
social, classical, economic, and environmental history associations spring
to mind in this regard). Papers and sessions based upon innovative research
methodologies and incorporating novel theoretical perspectives or utilizing
inter-disciplinary approaches are particularly welcome. A keynote session on
recording and writing the history of a contemporary disaster - in this case
the Red River Flood of 1997 - is also being planned. Yet another session
will deal with the topic, "Life after a history degree" - a panel discussion
which we hope will be of particular use to our student attendees. Finally,
we hope to incorporate even more papers and panels than usual which deal
with various aspects of Canadian history and with both the parallels and
points of departure between Canadian and U.S. history.
In keeping with the NGPHC tradition of being "student-friendly," several
sessions featuring the work of graduate students will be offered, while at
least two sessions will be reserved for outstanding undergraduate papers.
Instructors who are leading honours/honors seminars or offering their
Department's senior capstone course this academic year are invited to
encourage their most promising students to submit proposals for these
sessions. Students are, however, also free to submit paper and panel
proposals which would follow the more traditional conference format.
All paper and panel proposals must be submitted by April 15, 2001. Send one page abstracts and a short vita (e-mail submissions are quite acceptable)
to Jim Mochoruk at the address listed below.
