The Graduate History Association at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is pleased to announce its Fourth Annual Graduate History Forum, to be held on March 7 and 8, 2014. The keynote lecture will be given by Dr. Aaron Sheehan-Dean, Professor of History at Louisiana State University and author of Why Confederates Fought: Family and Nation in Civil War Virginia.
The Graduate History Forum provides M.A. and Ph.D. students with an opportunity to present their scholarship, exchange ideas, make professional contacts, and develop new skills. Conference participants will have the option to attend interactive workshops on innovative teaching techniques (such as Team-Based Learning) and thesis/dissertation writing.
We welcome both individual paper and panel proposals relating to all aspects of historical scholarship. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome, as are approaches that encompass multiple time periods and geographic regions. Each panel will be moderated by a UAB faculty member, and each speaker will have approximately 20 minutes to complete his or her presentation. A short discussion will follow.
Individual paper proposals should include a 250-word abstract along with paper title, author contact information, and a brief (no more than two pages) curriculum vitae. Panel proposals should include a 350-word abstract outlining the panel topic, arguments to be made by at least two (and no more than three presenters), and curricula vitae.
The deadline for submission of proposals is January 6, 2014.
Please e-mail all proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org. All writers will be notified of a decision via e-mail. If selected, participants must submit their final papers by February 21, 2014. Questions should be directed to Ashley Foster and Jennifer Stitt at email@example.com.
