The History Graduate Student Association (HGSA) at California State University, Fresno would like to announce the 15th Annual History Graduate Student Symposium. The symposium will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at CSU Fresno.
HGSA at Fresno State is now accepting papers from graduate students in any field of historical inquiry, especially those demonstrating innovative and/or interdisciplinary approaches. Historians are encouraged to submit their scholarly research that reflects the theme “Turning Points.” Papers should address the significance of change over time and demonstrate that past events were contingent upon pivotal moments.
Please submit a 100-word proposal and a current curriculum vitae to Samantha Peel at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 22, 2013.
The keynote speaker will be Louise Pubols, the Chief Curator at the Oakland Museum of California and author of The Father of All: The de la Guerra Family, Power, and Patriarchy in Mexican California. Published in 2009, The Father of All explores the changing political and economic environment of 19th century California through the de la Guerra family. Her book was awarded the Ray Allen Billington Prize by the Orgianization of American Historians, and the William P. Clements Prize by the William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies. Dr. Pubols’s address will focus on academic professions in public history.
The 15th Annual History Graduate Student Symposium is sponsored by Associated Students, Inc., the College of Social Sciences, and the Department of History at California State University, Fresno.
