Graduate students from the Department of History, University of Toronto, are pleased to invite you to "Cultures in Contact," the 4th Annual Graduate History Symposium, 8-9 February 2008.
Graduate students from history and several other disciplines, coming from universities in Canada, the United States, and Europe, will present papers on a wide range of topics related to the theme. The conference features presentations by more than 40 participants, a roundtable discussion on "Teaching Sensitive Subjects to a Multicultural Classroom," and a keynote address by recent U of T grad Dr. Deborah Neill (York University). In addition, we have two social events planned, to which you are also most welcome: a Friday evening reception in the University of Toronto Art Centre, and a Saturday pub night at the Duke of York.
Registration fees for the conference are $20, or $12 if you attend one day only. All registered participants will be provided with breakfast, coffee/tea, a full lunch, and snacks, as well as hors d'oeuvres and a glass of wine (with more available at a cash bar) at the Friday reception, and snacks at the pub on Saturday.
