The History Graduate Student Association of the University of Kentucky invites paper and panel proposals for its annual conference to be held 30-31 March 2007. The Bluegrass Symposium provides a forum for graduate and advanced undergraduate students to present their work and receive feedback from faculty members and other students. Conference papers may be based upon original research or can examine trends in recent scholarship.
The theme for this year, “Rethinking History: Diversity in Shaping Our Past,” 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 aims to bring together students and faculty who are engaged in the study of history and methodology as well as other fields including but not limited to literary criticism, political science, sociology, anthropology, and geography.
To submit a proposal for a paper and/or session, send a one-page abstract for each presentation and a one-page C.V. 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. Email submissions are encouraged and will be accepted until 2 March 2007.
