The History Graduate Student Association of the University of Kentucky invites paper and panel proposals for its annual conference to be held 7-8 April 2006 on the campus of the University of Kentucky. Conference papers may be based on original research or can examine trends in recent scholarship.
The theme of the conference, "Who's/Whose History?: Evolution, Possession, Meaning," is purposely broad to allow students the chance to present papers based on their interests. Papers may address any aspect of history and work on Kentucky is especially desired. The symposium is part of a year-long university-wide discussion on evolution, so we also welcome papers dealing with evolution, biology, law, politics, or other disciplines.
To submit a proposal for a paper and/or session, send a one-page abstract for each presentation and a one-page CV for each participant. Panel proposals should include two or three presenters and a commentator. Abstracts for papers should be approximately 200-400 words, typed and double-spaced. E-mail submissions are encouraged. All paper abstracts and proposals must be received by 15 February 2006. Sessions will be announced by 1 April 2006. Prizes are being offered by the Kentucky Historical Society, for the best graduate paper on a Kentucky topic, and two by the UK chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, for the best paper by a Phi Alpha Theta member and the best overall paper. To be eligible for the prizes, complete papers must be submitted by 1 March.
