13th ANNUAL UNIVERSITY OF MAINE /
UNIVERSITY OF NEW BRUNSWICK
INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE STUDENT CONFERENCE
October 14 to 16, 2011
The history graduate students of the University of Maine and University of New Brunswick wish to announce the 13th Annual International Graduate Student Conference, set for October 14-16, 2011. Jointly hosted by graduate students from the University of Maine in Orono, Maine, and the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, New Brunswick, the conference alternates every other year between the two campuses. In the past years, the conference has grown to attract participants from a number of universities throughout the United States and Canada. This year's event will be held on the University of New Brunswick campus in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
We invite all interested graduate students to submit proposals related to any topic of historical investigation. This conference is designed to offer graduate students the opportunity to present their work before a friendly audience of graduate students and faculty, and an opportunity to meet graduate students who have similar experiences and interests in an expanding discipline.
Dr. Jacques Ferland will deliver the keynote address on 14 October, 2011. Dr. Ferland is a specialist in Colonial Canadian, Franco-Canadian and Native American history. His research has also paid close attention to labour history, women’s history, and the textile industry. His keynote address will centre on post-confederation aspects of the “borderlands” experience among different groups of culture in the Northeast.
Both individual and panel proposals are welcome. Please submit a title, an abstract (500 words or less), and a CV or brief biographical sketch electronically by 1 July, 2011 to:
Céline Bastien (firstname.lastname@example.org)
or by regular mail to:
13th Annual University of Maine/UNB Conference Committee,
