The James A. Barnes Club, Temple University's graduate student history organization, is pleased to announce the Fifteenth Annual Barnes Club Graduate Student Conference.
The Barnes Club Conference will be held on Saturday March 26, at Temple University's Center City Campus, located at 1515 Market Street in downtown Philadelphia. In the past, the Barnes Club Conference has drawn participants from across the nation and around the world, becoming one of the largest graduate student conferences on the East Coast. The Conference is a wonderful opportunity for graduate students to present original research in front of their peers, and receive valuable comments on their papers.
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 three to four paper presentations at fifteen to twenty minutes each. Presentations will be followed by a brief commentary offered by a graduate student. Faculty members from Temple and other area universities will moderate each panel. Cash prizes will be awarded to the best papers in American, European, and International history, along with the prestigious Russell F. Weigley U.S. Army Heritage Center Foundation Award. The registration fee is $25 for presenters and attendees. A continental breakfast, lunch, and pre- and post-conference receptions are included.
Please submit a one-page proposal that outlines your original research and a current C.V. no later than January 14, 2011. The Barnes Club Conference Committee will evaluate proposals and inform participants by January 30, 2011. Final drafts of papers and registration fees are due no later than March 4, 2011. Electronic submission is required to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to paper presentations, the conference will continue a successful program of workshops and round-table discussions to take place on Friday March 25, the evening prior to the conference. Topics will include publishing, interviewing, and grant submission, among others. There will also be a key-note speech on the day of the conference.
