The History Graduate Student Association at Ohio University invites submissions to present papers at the Sixth Annual Graduate History Conference to be held on Saturday April 16, 2011, at the Ohio University Campus in Athens, Ohio.
The organizing committee is seeking graduate students from all disciplines to submit proposals on any historical topic. Panels will consist of three presenters, a chair, and commentator. Ohio University will provide chairs and commentators. This is an excellent opportunity for young scholars to present their research and gain insightful comments.
The conference will feature a keynote address by Ohio alumnus Dr. Philip Nash, Associate Professor of History at Penn State-Shenango. Dr. Nash has written on several different aspects of United States foreign relations and his first book, The Other Missiles of October: Eisenhower, Kennedy, and the Jupiters, 1957-1963, explored the widely neglected role had by U.S. missiles in Italy and Turkey during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The title of Dr. Nash's keynote is "Women Who Run with the Cookie-Pushers: America's First Female Ambassadors, 1933-64."
Panels will take place all day Saturday with Dr. Nash’s keynote coming that afternoon. Saturday evening, a reception for conference participants and Ohio faculty will take place at the Contemporary History Institute on Ohio University’s campus.
Those students interested are asked to submit a 200 word abstract and a current C.V. to firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions regarding the conference please contact Matt Jacobs at email@example.com
Deadline for abstract submissions is March 1. Final papers along with a $10 registration fee due on March 25. A limited number of accommodations will be available on a first come first serve basis.
