IGHS Conference CFP

The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference will host “Crossing Borders, Challenging Boundaries, ” at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, March 31-April 1, 2017. 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.
