The History Graduate Student Organization at Texas A&M University is pleased to announce a call for papers for the inaugural Texas A&M Graduate History Conference. The conference will be held on March 6, 2010, in honor of Betty Unterberger, a noted diplomatic historian and the first woman to hold the rank of professor at Texas A&M. Robert Abzug, the Oliver H. Radkey Regent Professor and Director of the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies at the University of Texas, will provide the keynote address. Professor Abzug’s scholarship has spanned both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and has been concerned with issues of social and moral consciousness, as well as modern interpretations of religion and psychology.
We encourage paper submissions from all fields relating to history, and intend this interdisciplinary conference to give young scholars the opportunity to present their research in a friendly and scholarly environment. All graduate students and advanced undergraduates are encouraged to apply. Applicants are requested to submit a one page abstract and a curriculum vitae by December 14, 2009, to firstname.lastname@example.org Similar papers will be grouped into panels, and all applicants will be notified by December 21 whether we have been able to find a fit for them. Applicants whose papers are accepted will have until February 1 to turn in the full version (not to exceed ten pages). Prizes will be award to the top three papers.
