The Northeastern University History graduate students and the NU Department of History invite proposals for their upcoming graduate student conference, "Out of Bounds: Exploring Global Connections." Graduate students working in all disciplines of the arts and social sciences are encouraged to submit topical papers, artwork and documentaries.
The conference invites scholarly work that challenges our notions of boundaries and borders. The world is more connected today through communication, technology, commerce, and politics than ever before. Exploring global connections, in both the past and present, has therefore become imperative for scholars throughout the social sciences. How can global stories be told? How can we move beyond bounded paradigms such as the nation, culture, and modernity, which have been ingrained, not only in our literature, but also in our own minds? Northeastern University's 1st World History Conference welcomes all scholarship that examines these and related questions through the lens of race, gender, class, diaspora, the environment, economics, globalization, violence, space/place, and related fields.
Keynote Speaker: John Thornton, Boston University
