The Graduate Student History Association, under the umbrella of the History Department at Claremont Graduate University, will be hosting its 1st annual graduate student conference, April 24-5, 2009, in Claremont CA. The title of the conference is "Intersecting Histories: Transforming Identities, Places and Beliefs."
This conference seeks to explore the broad spectrum of meeting points, crossings, (or “the event” as intersection), and transformations that may have occurred throughout history. What happens when paths cross? How are people, places and beliefs transformed? What are the contingencies or
constrictions for this process? How does consideration of various power relations throw light upon this focal point?
We are seeking papers that spur an innovative discussion to our query and explore diverse interpretations. The intent of the conference is to provide a forum for graduate students in all disciplines to present research that is historically grounded yet creatively investigates these points of intersection— the nodes which connect and shape peoples, places or beliefs.
