Call for Papers *Deadline Extended to September 8*

Twelfth Annual

Loyola University Chicago History Graduate Student Conference

November 14, 2015

Loyola University Chicago Water Tower Campus, Chicago, IL

Masters and doctoral graduate students in any field of historical study are invited to submit proposals to present individual research papers at Loyola’s Eleventh Annual History Graduate Student Conference.  Panel applications and individual papers focusing on borderlands and transnational studies, urban history, gender history, and public history are especially encouraged.  We also welcome papers about history projects in the digital humanities. The goal of this conference is to provide an opportunity for students to gain experience presenting original research projects and to receive feedback from their peers on their work.

Certificates will be awarded to the top three conference presentations.

Individual proposals should include: submitter’s name, contact information, institutional affiliation(s), a one page abstract of the paper (with a title), and a sentence listing up to three historical subjects your paper addresses (e.g. French history, sport history, gender). Please also include a brief biographical statement indicating your academic status along with a return address and current e-mail address.  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.

For more information please visit https://loyolahistoryconference.wordpress.com or our department webpage at http://www.luc.edu/history/graduate/conference_test.shtml

 

Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, September 8, 2015.  E-mail proposals as an attachment to the HGSA Conference Committee at: HGSA@luc.edu or mail to:
