The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference will host “Relocating History, Repositioning the Past” at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, on March 28-29, 2014. We invite graduate students from across the social sciences and the humanities to submit proposals for papers or panels that adopt an interdisciplinary or transnational approach but we are also seeking papers or panels that approach historical topics in more traditional ways. All submissions must be based on original research. In keeping with the theme of the conference, individual papers will be organized into panels that cross spatial, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries.
Linda Colley, Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of History at Princeton University will give the keynote address on “WORDPOWER: Written Constitutions and the Writing of Global History.”
Send abstract of no more than 250-350 words and a short curriculum vita as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Preference will be given to papers and panels received during the early submission period, which ends December 1, 2013. The deadline for regular submission is January 25, 2014.
