The James A. Barnes Club, Temple University’s graduate student history organization, is pleased to announce the Twelfth Annual James A. Barnes Club Graduate Student Conference.
The Barnes Club Conference will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2007 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Temple University’s Center City campus, 1515 Market Street in downtown Philadelphia. In the past, the Barnes Club Conference has drawn participants from across the nation and around the world.
Proposals from graduate students for individual papers and/or panels are welcome on any topic, time period, or approach in history. The panels will include two or three paper presentations at twenty minutes each. Presentations will be followed by a brief commentary offered by a graduate student. Faculty members from Temple University or other universities in the region will moderate every panel. Prizes will be awarded to the best papers in certain categories. The registration fee is $20 for presenters and attendees. A continental breakfast, lunch, and post-conference reception are included.
Please submit a one-page proposal that outlines your original research and a current C.V. no later than Monday, January 15, 2007. The Barnes Club Conference Committee will evaluate proposals and inform participants by February 19, 2007. Final drafts of accepted papers and registration fees are due no later than March 19, 2007. Electronic submissions are required in order for papers to be considered by the prize committees.
In addition to paper presentations, the Barnes Club Conference will continue a successful program initiated at the 2004 conference: the mock interview. A public mock interview will occur for those who wish to observe the academic job interview process. The conference schedule will also feature roundtable discussions on article and book publishing, teaching history as a career, grant writing, and research tools available to historians and graduate students.
