2018 IGHSC - REAL AND IMAGINED BORDERS: PEOPLE, PLACE, TIME

The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference will host “Real and Imagined Borders: People, Place, Time” at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, on April 6 - 7, 2018. We invite graduate students from across the social sciences and the humanities to submit proposals for papers or panels that adopt an interdisciplinary or transnational approach but we are also seeking papers or panels that approach historical topics in more traditional ways. All submissions must be based on original research. In keeping with the theme of the conference, individual papers will be organized into panels that cross spatial, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries. The IGHSC will present cash prizes for the best papers in several categories.

2018 KEYNOTE SPEAKER

The keynote speaker for the 2018 conference is Dr. Alan Taylor, the Thomas Jefferson Chair in American History at the University of Virginia.

HISTORY

The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference (IGHSC) took its present name during the 2012 conference. It evolved out of the Central Michigan University’s Department of History Graduate Conference. The Graduate Conference started in 2008 as an internal conference for the department’s graduate students. Later conferences saw graduate students attending from several other Michigan universities. The growth in interest by attendees from outside of the country prompted the change; the 2012 IGHSC host 14 presenters from foreign universities (representing at least six different nations). In addition, the conference had 21 graduate presenters from CMU, 9 from other Michigan Universities, and 18 from other US institutions. IGHSC 2012 also was the first CMU history conference to invite advanced undergraduates to present; in 2012, five CMU undergraduates delivered at IGHSC.

We invite graduate students from across the social sciences and the humanities to submit proposals for papers or panels that adopt an interdisciplinary or transnational approach but we are also seeking papers or panels that approach historical topics in more traditional ways. All submissions must be based on original research. In keeping with the theme of the conference, individual papers will be organized into panels that cross spatial, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries. The IGHSC will present cash prizes for the best papers in several categories.
