The University of Kentucky History Graduate Student Association invites paper and panel proposals for its annual graduate student conference to be held on Friday and Saturday, February 19-20, 2010. The Bluegrass Regional Graduate Student Conference provides a forum for graduate students to present their work and receive feedback from faculty members and fellow graduate students. It is also an excellent opportunity for professional development and networking. Conference papers may be based upon original research or can examine trends in recent scholarship.
This year’s Keynote Speaker is Dr. David Armitage of Harvard University, who will deliver an address on the global history of the Declaration of Independence. Students are encouraged to submit papers pertaining to a broad range of historical interests, but papers on the relationships between the Declaration of Independence and/or global, African American, and gender history are especially welcome. The conference aims to bring together students and faculty who are engaged in the study of history and methodology, as well as other fields including but not limited to literary criticism, political science, sociology, anthropology, and geography.
To submit a proposal for a paper and/or session, send a one-page abstract for each presentation and a one-page C.V. for each participant. Panel proposals should include two or three presenters and a commentator. Abstracts for papers should be approximately 200-400 words, typed and double-spaced. Email submissions are encouraged and will be accepted until Thursday, December 31, 2009. To submit your proposal, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
