Twenty-First Annual Bluegrass Symposium
University of Kentucky History Graduate Student Conference
February 24-25, 2012
University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY
The Twenty-First Annual Bluegrass Symposium, the University of Kentucky’s History Graduate Student Conference, invites paper submissions from advanced graduate students in any field of history. Students may submit individual paper proposals or panels. All fields of history are welcome, and we especially encourage submissions on Foreign Policy, the American South and Appalachia, the History of Slavery, Transnational and Global History. The goal of this conference is to provide an opportunity for M.A. and Ph.D. students to gain experience presenting original research and receiving feedback in a conference setting.
Our keynote speakers will be Dr. Jeremi Suri, the Mack Brown Distinguished Professor for Global Leadership, History, and Public Policy at the University of Texas at Austin, author of this year’s Liberty’s Surest Guardian: American Nation-Building from the Founders to Obama, and Dr. Tatiana Seijas, Assistant Professor of History at Miami University and author of “The Portuguese Slave Trade to Spanish Manila: 1580-1640,” published in Itinerario: International Journal on the History of European Expansion and Global Interaction.
Proposals should include: submitter’s name, contact information/email, institutional affiliation, a 250- word abstract of the paper (with title), and a brief biographical statement indicating your academic status. Recognition of the two strongest papers will receive $50 in travel support and lodging for Friday. We will also make an effort to match those in need of lodging with local graduate students. Please indicate if you would like to be considered for either of these support options.
