2013 Graduate Student Conference: Call for Papers
The Place of History: A Graduate Student Conference, Georgia State University, April 5-6, 2013
If history is rooted in time, it is also grounded in space. The Association of Historians at Georgia State University and the Department of History invite graduate students to convene in Atlanta, Georgia on April 5-6, 2013 to discuss the many ways in which time and space overlap in the production of historical knowledge. Relevant topics could include, but are certainly not limited to empirical or theoretical explorations of history of cartography or territoriality, transnationalism and globalization, the production of gendered or racialized space, the history of colonies and empire, cyber-space, outer space and public history topics relating to urban life, public space, and the relationship between place and memory. Compelling explorations of other topics are also encouraged.
Please submit abstracts of single papers, or abstracts of complete panels to email@example.com. Abstracts of individual papers should be 150-300 words and include a 1 page version of your C.V. Proposals for panels should include an 100 word abstract for the panel as a whole, plus abstracts for the individual papers and C.V.'s for each panelist. Proposals and abstracts are due by Dec. 31, 2012.
