+++ Apply now to our student conference +++ Applications are open now +++

The Department of History Graduate Student Association (DOHGSA) is hosting its seventeenth annual conference on March 24, 2017. It is titled “New Directions in Atlantic History.”

The event will include panels and workshops. We seek papers, based on original research, from Ph.D. and M.A. students that use recent trends in the humanities and the social sciences. These practices include, but are not limited to, public history, oral history, memory studies, material culture, digital humanities, and interdisciplinary methods. We also encourage the submission of papers based on more traditional methodologies. There are no geographic or chronological restrictions, but special consideration will be given to proposals that address Atlantic History.

The keynote speaker for this conference will be Dr. Leora Auslander, professor of Modern European Social History at the University of Chicago. Dr. Auslander’s research focuses on the fields of material culture, memory and commemorative practices, gender history and theory, the history and theory of the everyday, of race, of citizenship, and Jewish history. Her current works, titled The Everyday of Modern Citizenship: France and Germany 1918–1940 and Conundrums of Commemoration, touch on the domain of material culture and the histories of production and consumption.

All proposals must be submitted by February 01, 2017.

Paper Proposals Guidelines: Please limit your proposal to a 300-word abstract. This proposal should include a working title and a brief description of the topic, including a clear thesis statement. Please include a current curriculum vitae with each application.  We welcome submissions for individual papers and for panels.  Presenters who require audio-visual support should indicate as much in their application. Please indicate whether you are interested in participating in a panel or a workshop. For the two workshop sessions, papers will be posted for reading two weeks prior to the conference.
