The Graduate History Association invites proposals for papers for its Sixth Annual Graduate History Conference to be held at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst on Saturday, March 27, 2010.
Historians spend a great deal of time attempting to find breaks in the historical record - the moments when change occurs. Scholarship in the last two decades has emphasized the need to explore the more nuanced ways in which historical actors initiate change. What roles have individuals, institutions, organizations, and movements played in fomenting change? Examining these transitional moments in history can help us make sense of the social and cultural dynamics we confront today. These inquiries into our past reveal that change is the only constant.
Submissions should address moments of and movements for social and cultural change. We encourage submissions from any discipline on a wide range of topics and periods. We are particularly interested in papers addressing the following topics, but will consider others as well:
Resistance and Reconciliation
Print Culture and New Media
Graduate students interested in participating in this conference should submit a one-page paper proposal and curriculum vitae (.doc, .docx, or .pdf format) for consideration by January 15, 2010. Accepted proposals will be notified shortly thereafter.
Please e-mail materials to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or send by overland mail to the address shown.
