Call for Papers: Redefining World History: Northeastern University’s Third Annual History Graduate Student Conference, Boston, Massachusetts, March 12–13, 2011.
Northeastern University’s History Graduate Students and the NU History Department invite submissions to their upcoming graduate student conference, “Redefining World History.”
Graduate students working in all disciplines of the humanities, arts, and social sciences are encouraged to submit topical papers, artwork, and documentaries.
The conference especially invites scholarly work that engages and reconsiders the theories and methodologies of world history, as well as papers and panel submissions that explore the following themes in the context of world history:
•Movements of people, commodities, and ideas across space and time (including, but not limited to, social, religious, artistic, or political movements)
•The role of memory (personal and public) in the creation and dissemination of world history
•The role of imagination/ideology in world history
•Understanding world history through public history
•Empires, networks, and world systems
Papers that offer a methodological intervention into the field of world history are especially of interest to the conference committee. Students who submit such papers will be eligible to take place in roundtable discussions on this subject, which will occur throughout the conference.
Both individual and panel proposals will be considered. Regardless of medium (visual media or scholarly paper), panelists will have fifteen minutes each to present. To be considered, the following documents should be sent to the program committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2010
-250-word abstract describing paper or work to be presented
-List of audio/visual needs, if applicable
-Brief curriculum vitae
-250-word abstract for each paper or work to be presented
-List of all panel members (3 per panel) with designated chairperson. The conference committee will also assign chairpersons, if necessary.
