CALL FOR PAPERS - SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MAY 26, 2013
The graduate students of the Department of History at the University of Colorado Boulder are pleased to announce the fourteenth annual Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference. This academic conference provides a congenial atmosphere for students to present papers, network with fellow graduate students, gain experience in public speaking, and attend a professional development panel. First-time presenters are especially encouraged to participate.
Please apply online at: http://www.tinyurl.com/rmihc-abstract. Submit there the abstract submission form, a one-page abstract of the paper, and a current CV (all files should be uploaded in .pdf). The abstract should clearly express an original argument rooted in extensive primary source research.
This year’s best non-CU paper will receive a monetary prize.
We welcome submissions from graduate students working in any discipline and national context. Exceptional undergraduate papers will be considered. Past participants have come from fields as diverse as history, political science, economics, cultural studies, philosophy, comparative literature, film, art history, and theatre. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
• Regional, National, Transnational, or International History
• Diplomatic History
• History of the West
• Visual Culture and Art History
• Race, Ethnicity, and Cultural Identity
• Jewish Studies
• Gender or History of Sexuality
• History of Ideas
• Environmental History
• Asian History
Every paper will receive commentary by another graduate student, and a faculty member will moderate each panel session. Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session.
Presentations will be strictly limited to 15 minutes, thus papers should be 8 pages in length, not including endnotes and bibliography.
Submissions of complete panels are welcomed. We encourage presenters working in underrepresented areas to submit paper and/or panel proposals.
