The Graduate History Association at the University of Massachusetts Amherst is pleased to announce the 8th Annual Graduate History Conference - "Networks, Connections and Exchange: Historical Perspectives" - this Saturday, March 10, 2012, hosted at the Isenburg School of Management on the University's campus.
This year, graduate students will explore the theme of "Networks, Connections, and Exchange" through their original research regarding transatlantic, revolutionary, and religious subjects, to name only a few. We look to discuss how networks produced change over time, what historical process lead to different types of material and ideological exchange, and the development of new identities and connections between peoples.
We are thrilled to have as our keynote speaker, local and renowned author of 1491 and 1493: CHARLES C. MANN. His talk, "Drilling through the Silo," will focus on the increasing inter disciplinarity of the historical craft, the contributions other fields can make to history, and history to those other fields.
This is a free event open to graduates, undergrads, and faculty of all disciplines! Pre-registration is not required, though RSVP is appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you there!
