The History Graduate Students’ Association at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is now accepting paper and panel proposals for the 2009 James A. Rawley Graduate Conference in the Humanities, March 27-28, 2009.
The Rawley Conference is an annual event that offers graduate students and advanced under-graduates the opportunity to present their research in an environment modeled on professional conferences. Attending the Rawley Conference helps prepare students for future academic endeavors by providing a collegial atmosphere in which to share scholarship and interact with peers. The Conference also facilitates networking and encourages meaningful discourse that can spur new research and professional contacts.
This year’s theme, “Contrasts & Commonalities: Expanding Perspectives Through Comparative Study,” highlights the expanding use of comparative methods, which allow for deeper attention, closer analysis, and a more complete interpretation of the processes that underlay our world.
Dr. Sterling Evans, Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in History at Brandon University, Brandon, Manitoba, Canada and incoming (2009) Louise Welsh Chair in Southern Plains and Borderlands History, University of Oklahoma, will deliver the keynote address: “Nothing New about NAFTA: The Great Plains and North American Connections.”
