Northern Illinois University History Graduate Student Conference in Honor
of Professor Alfred F. Young
November 1, 2013
Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL
We are pleased to announce the 6th Annual History Graduate Student Conference, sponsored by the Department of History at Northern Illinois University, to be held in DeKalb, Illinois on Friday, 1 November 2013. Participants will present their work in a supportive and collegial setting, and meet future colleagues from other institutions and historical fields.
We are especially excited and proud to announce that year's conference will begin an annual NIU tradition of honoring NIU Professor Alfred F. Young. While the conference does not have a specific theme—embracing proposals from across the historical spectrum—papers utilizing the approach of “history from below” are especially encouraged. Northern Illinois also has the honor of welcoming former American Historical Association President, Professor Linda Kerber of the University of Iowa, who will deliver this year’s Alfred F. Young Keynote Address.
Masters and doctoral graduate students in any field of historical study are invited to submit proposals to present individual research papers. We invite you to submit abstracts for 15-20 minute papers in all fields of history. Please submit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, 19 August 2013.
Individual proposals should include submitter’s name, contact information, institutional affiliation(s), a one-page abstract of the paper (with a title), and a brief biographical statement indicating your academic status along with a return address and current e-mail address. Panel proposals for two or three presenters are also encouraged. Panel proposals should include the above, as well as a brief description of the panel itself. Please note that submissions will be accepted as time and space permit. Upon permission of individual presenters, outstanding papers will be also reviewed by a NIU faculty committee for publication in the department’s second annual conference e-journal.
Please address any inquiries to Ian Burns (email@example.com), Conference Chair and Organizer. Registration and program information will be sent in late August.
