The Barnes Club Conference will be held on Saturday, March 27, 2010, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM at Temple University's Center City Campus, 1515 Market Street in downtown Philadelphia. In the past, the Barnes Club Conference has become one of the largest graduate student conferences on the East Coast, drawing participants from across the nation and around the world.
Proposals from graduate students for individual papers and/or panels are welcome on any topic, time period, or approach to history. The panels will include two or three paper presentations at twenty minutes each. Cash prizes will be awarded to the best papers in American, European, World, and military history. The registration fee is $40 for presenters and attendees. A continental breakfast, lunch, and pre- and post-conference receptions are included.
Please submit a one-page abstract that outlines your original research and a current C.V. no later than January 15, 2010. Please do not send complete papers at this time; only abstracts will be accepted. The Barnes Club Conference Committee will notify applicants by February 5, 2010. Final drafts of papers and registration fees are due no later than March 5, 2010. Electronic submission is required.
In addition to paper presentations, the conference will feature a keynote address by Yale historian Glenda Gilmore, author of the recent book Defying Dixie. Furthermore, this year’s presenters will have the opportunity to publish their work in an online journal produced by the Barnes Club. Finally, we will continue a successful program of workshops and round-table discussions.
