The Third Annual Western University Graduate History Conference
Call for Papers
We are currently accepting paper abstracts for the third annual Graduate History Conference at Western University in London, Ontario which will be held on October 18th and 19th 2013.
Participants are encouraged to explore how the theme daydreams and nightmares relates to their area of study, looking at either one or both ends of this spectrum. History contains countless instances of change and conflict, both which can easily be framed within the spectrum of lightness and darkness, and optimism and pessimism. The conference provides an excellent forum for Masters and PhD students to present their research and receive feedback in a positive environment.
We welcome a broad range of perspectives and approaches as this years theme Daydreams and Nightmares can be widely interpreted to encompass the following:
Idealised and/or Traumatic memories
War and Society
Ethnicity and Immigration
Women and Gender
Age and Family
Hopes and Struggles of labour/working groups
Digital and Public History
First Nations History
Religion and Religious groups
Politics and the State
History of Medicine
Protest and Change
Real and Imagined Space
We are pleased to announce that our keynote speakers this year are Stuart Henderson, author of the award-winning Making the Scene: Yorkville and Hip Toronto in the 1960s, and Western Universitys Digital History expert and author of The Archive of Place, William Turkel.
Interested applicants should submit a short biography and a 250 word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, July 26th.
