The American Political History Institute of Boston University invites paper submissions for its upcoming graduate student conference in Boston on March 20-21. This interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together emerging scholarship in American history that challenges traditional approaches to understanding American politics. The weekend will provide an opportunity for graduate students to collaborate, debate, and engage with one another and established professionals in the field of political history. The conference builds upon the recent reinvigoration of political scholarship by promoting exciting research ideas and forging new academic relationships.
Panels will be organized broadly around six fields of American political history: policy, political economy, political culture, the changing electorate, political identities, and foreign relations. We encourage submissions from any era, colonial to present, that reinterpret the meaning of “political” and use new methodology and approaches to studying American history.
