Extended Deadline Coming to Terms: Legacies of Conflict and Resolution
1st Annual James A. Rawley Graduate Conference in the Humanities April 7-8, 2006
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln History Graduate Studentsí Association has extended the deadline for paper proposals to Friday, January 20, 2006.
In an age when global conflicts dominate the news, it is important for scholars to examine the ways in which individuals, groups, states, and nations approach these struggles. The human response is as varied as are the types of dissension and adaptation. This conference aims to explore the myriad results of these clashes, both historical and modern, and the ways in which conflict and resolution are remembered and (re)presented. The HGSA invites paper proposals from graduate and advanced undergraduate students. We especially encourage paper submissions dealing with gender, race and ethnicity, military and international affairs, the North American West (in particular the Great Plains), religion, environment, colonialism/post-colonialism, and historical memory. Paper proposals should include a one-page abstract and a one-to-two-page curriculum vitae. Full panel proposals will also be accepted. Panel proposals should include a one-page description of the panel itself, as well as one-page abstracts for each paper (maximum of four) and a current c.v. for each panel participant. Be sure to indicate any audio-visual needs required for presentations. All proposals should be emailed to HGSA@unlnotes.unl.edu no later than January 20, 2006. Awards will be given for the best undergraduate and graduate papers.
