The Future Professoriate Program for the Department of History at Syracuse University invites graduate students at all levels to submit paper proposals for its Fifth Annual Syracuse Graduate History Conference, to be held on March 29th, 2013. Our organization’s goal is to help graduate students grow as professionals within the academic community. Graduate students are welcome to propose either individual or panel presentations.
This year’s theme is “Violence and Resistance.” These have become increasingly central to scholarship and have been a palpable presence both on the news and in our classrooms. We define violence and resistance broadly. Submitted papers may focus upon the subject and the connotations thereof in various forms. Topics may include but are not limited to:
· Community Identity
· Popular Culture
· Imperialism/Colonial Experiences
· The Self
Presentations will be 20 minutes long in three-person panels. Priority will be given to panels representing multiple institutions. For individual paper proposals, please submit abstracts no longer than 300 words and a C.V. For panel proposals, please also submit a 200-word panel abstract. The proposal deadline is January 15th, 2013. Please submit all materials to Alexandra Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org
Participants will be responsible for their own travel and meal expenses, but some refreshments will be provided. We are a welcoming graduate community and will be happy to answer any questions.
