The Keewatin Country Graduate Student History Conference is organized by the graduate students of the History Departments at the University of Manitoba, the University of Saskatchewan, and the University of Winnipeg. The conference will take place at Wanuskewin Heritage Park outside Saskatoon, from April 25-27, 2013.
At Keewatin 2013 we want to spark conversations about historical study and the accessibility of historical research. Presenters can address any aspect of their current research activities (theoretical concepts, the research process, or preliminary results), or provide commentary on accessing historical resources, or on the process of memorialisation. We invite papers from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including all periods and topics in History, Art History, Historical Geography, Archival Studies and related disciplines.
We particularly encourage submissions related to the following topics:
* creation and contestation of historical memory
* oral history
* digital humanities
* public outreach activities
* open access publication in the humanities
* physical and online access to historical material
* teaching historical and archival practice
* research in progress
Please submit abstracts of up to 300 words or full panel abstracts (4 papers maximum) to firstname.lastname@example.org before January 30, 2012.
Keewatin offers graduate students and top undergraduate students an opportunity to present their research in a collegial, scholarly environment. It also serves as an opportunity to build relationships and networks with students and faculty from nearby institutions.
Registration details will be available on the University of Saskatchewan Department of History website early in January. Successful applicants will be notified by February 15, 2013.
