Graduate History Association Hosts Annual Conference

The Graduate History Association will hosts its annual conference on March 9th, 2013. The deadline for submissions is just one week away! Here is the CFP:

“Competing Visions: Changing Landscapes in the Past, Present, and Future”

Call for Conference Proposals: Deadline January 15th, 2013

The Graduate History Association of the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites graduate students to submit proposals for its annual interdisciplinary conference. This year’s conference, entitled “Competing Visions: Changing Landscapes in the Past, Present, and Future,” will be held Saturday, March 9th, 2013.

The challenges societies and individuals face require imaginative and often controversial solutions. How have contrasting visions of societal, environmental, intellectual, and other landscapes competed to interpret the past and shape the future? How do shifts in historical perspectives impact the world in which we live today?

We welcome submissions from students of History, English and Comparative Literature, Anthropology, Political Science, Journalism, and all other disciplines relevant to competing approaches to history and today’s society. The following are just a few examples of possible presentation fields and subjects, although we will gladly receive others:

* Historical debates and revisionism * Memory * Contested literary analyses * Authoritative and revolutionary current events * Popular culture

Particular attention will be given to submissions utilizing primary source research.

Graduate students interested in participating in this conference should submit a one-page paper proposal and a resume or CV (.doc, .docx, or .pdf format). In your proposal, please include a paper title, abstract, and a very brief statement indicating your discipline and areas of geographic, chronological, and thematic focus, as well as any presentation AV needs.

Please e-mail materials to ghapage@history.umass.edu by January 15th, 2013. Accepted applicants will be notified in early February, with final drafts of accepted papers submitted February 21st.
