The history graduate students of the University of Maine and University of New Brunswick wish to announce the 9th Annual International Graduate Student Conference, set for September 28-30, 2007. In past years, the conference has attracted participants from a number of universities throughout the United States and Canada. This year's event will be held on the University of New Brunswick campus in Fredericton, N.B., Canada.
We invite all interested graduate students, from any university or college, to submit proposals related to any topic of historical investigation. This conference is designed to offer graduate students the opportunity to present their work before a friendly audience of peers, and an opportunity to meet other graduate students who have similar experiences and interests in an expanding discipline.
Dr. Scott W. See will deliver the keynote address on 28 September 2007. Dr. See is Chair of the Department of History and Libra Professor of History at the University of Maine. He is a specialist in Canadian history, Canadian-American history, and Northeast Borderlands. His publications include The History of Canada (2001) and Riots in New Brunswick: Orange Nativism and Social Violence in the 1840s (1993; second printing, 1999), plus numerous scholarly articles.
Both individual and panel proposals are welcome. Please submit your proposal of 500 words or less electronically by June 30, 2007.
