The Graduate History Association of the State University of New York at Buffalo would like to place a call for papers for our annual Milton Plesur Graduate History Conference, “Traversing the Borderlands: Past, Present, & Future” to be held on Saturday, April 6, 2013 in Buffalo, NY. We are pleased to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Barbara Krauthamer from UMass Amherst. Her keynote will address the complicated and often unexpected histories and legacies of slavery and emancipation in the Native American South.
We seek original research paper submissions that transcend the borders of nation-states and traverse boundaries – be they disciplinary, methodological, cultural, real or imagined – from a wide range of topics, time periods, and approaches. Please send your proposal, including a 250 word abstract (with title), curriculum vitae or academic biography, and contact information to Jake Newsome (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for paper proposals is Friday, February 1, 2013.
