The graduate students of the Department of History at the University of Colorado at Boulder invite submissions for the Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference 2001. This academic conference is designed specifically for graduate students in all disciplines, and seeks to provide a congenial atmosphere in which students may present work, network with fellow graduate students, gain experience in public speaking, and attend workshops specifically tailored to graduate student interests. First-time presenters are especially encouraged to participate. If you are working on an interesting project that deals with a historical topic, this conference provides an excellent environment in which to share your work!
We welcome submissions from graduate students working in any discipline. Past participants have come from fields as diverse as history, political science, art history, philosophy, comparative literature, and theatre. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Regional, National, or International History
Race and Ethnicity
History of Ideas
History of Science and Technology
Development of Social or Cultural Thought
Professional Development Workshops:
This year’s workshops will include “A How-To Guide for the Academic Going Public,” by Professor Patricia Nelson Limerick, Department of History, University of Colorado at Boulder; and “Crafting Winning First Impressions,” by Professor Abigail Dyer, Department of History, University of Colorado at Boulder; and a special session on using technology in the classroom.
Papers should be 10-15 pages, not including endnotes and bibliography.
Presentations will be strictly limited to 20 minutes. 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 abstracts will be posted online and published in the conference program.
Conference Proceedings will be published on CD-ROM and distributed to attendees.
