History Between the Hedges II: The Southeastern History Extravaganza
April 5, 2008
The University of Georgia's Epsilon Pi chapter of Phi Alpha Theta invites students at all levels to submit outstanding research papers for our second annual history conference, History Between the Hedges II: The Southeastern History Extravaganza. This is a terrific opportunity for students to share their research, meet fellow history geeks, and visit the University of Georgia. Workshops on careers in history and graduate school in history are tentatively scheduled. We
invite proposals for single papers and complete sessions (3
presenters). We also want applications from faculty and graduate students who would like to serve as panel commentators for undergraduate papers.
Date/Time/Location: The conference will be held Saturday, April 5, 2008 from 10AM to 5PM on the historic North Campus of the University of Georgia in Athens.
Guidelines: Presentations should be original research roughly fifteen minutes in length. Any historical subject is acceptable, regardless of geography or era. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee a spot on the program for submitters. We will notify accepted presenters by March 10, 2008.
Eligibility: Conference participation is open to all students
regardless of level or major. Recent graduates (within two years of graduation) are also eligible. Though the conference is aimed at undergraduates, graduate students are also welcome. However, graduate students will be responsible for setting up their own panels with commentators and forwarding that information to the conference organizer.
Proposals: Please e-mail proposals with presenter's name,
institutional affiliation, year, e-mail address, title of paper, and abstract (250 words or less) to firstname.lastname@example.org. This information should be in the text of the e-mail. Prospective faculty or graduate student commentators should send a copy of their CV and their historical specialty to the same address.
Fee: Registration for the conference is free; however, undergraduate paper presenters will need to send a $15.00 (checks only) deposit to: Phi Alpha Theta—Epsilon Pi, LeConte Hall, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, 30602. Deposits will be returned at the conference. Alternatively, the deposit may be waived with an e-mail to the conference organizer from a faculty member sponsoring the paper. Faculty members sponsoring multiple papers may wish to send one e-mail
with the names of all sponsored students. Participants who do not give notice of cancellation by March 14 will forfeit his or her deposit fee. Forfeited deposits will be used towards defraying conference costs. This fee is waived for graduate student panels.
