The Underhill Organizing Committee at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, is scheduled for March 8 and 9, 2007, and will feature a keynote address from Dr. Angus McLaren of the University of Victoria entitled: Glandular Eugenics: Sex, Race, and Rejuvenation in the Early Twentieth Century. We are also thrilled to announce a new feature called “Access Carleton Lunch and Learn.” In honour of the 50^th anniversary of graduate studies in history at Carleton, this year’s speaker on March 8th will be our very own social and environmental historian Dr. John Walsh.
The UGSC provides M.A. and Ph.D. students with a friendly atmosphere in which to present their original research to fellow Canadian and American colleagues. As in previous years, we will be accepting papers on any history related topic. The proposals should be 300 words in length and the presentations between 15 and 20 minutes in duration. Please submit electronic proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for submitting proposals is the 5th of January, 2007.
