The James A. Barnes Club, Temple University's graduate student history organization, is pleased to announce the 27th Annual Barnes Club Graduate Student History Conference. The event will feature a keynote address from the chair of the history department at Macalester College, Dr. Walter Greason, author of International Segregation and Cities Imagined: The African Diaspora in Media and History.
The Barnes Club Conference will be held Friday evening March 18th and Saturday March 19th, 2022, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Temple University's Center City Campus in downtown Philadelphia. The Barnes Club is monitoring the evolving COVID situation and will make a final decision on whether to transition to an online format no later than February 15th. The Barnes Conference is one of the largest and most prestigious graduate student conferences in the region, drawing participants from across the nation and around the world.
Proposals from graduate students for individual papers or panels are welcome on any topic, time period, or approach to history. We welcome proposals that foreground public history and digital humanities, and are eager to work with applicants in these fields to facilitate their participation. Panels will include three or four paper presentations, running between fifteen and twenty minutes each, with comments and questions to follow.
At the conclusion of the conference, cash prizes will be awarded to the best papers in multiple scholarly categories. Of particular note is the Russell F. Weigley – U.S. Army Heritage Center Foundation Award, a substantial award offered through the U.S. Army Heritage Center to the best paper in military history presented at the conference.
Please submit a 250-word abstract that outlines your original research or project and a current C.V. via this link no later than Monday, January 31, 2022. The registration fee is $50 for presenters. A continental breakfast, lunch, and pre- and post-conference receptions are included. Registration is free for all Barnes Club members.
