(Re)Writing Global Histories: Movement, Memory, and Materiality


March 23-24, 2019

Boston, MA, USA

Keynote: Zara Anishanslin, Assistant Professor of History and Art History at the UNiversity of Delaware 


The History Graduate Student Association at Northeastern University invites proposal submissions for its 11th annual graduate student conference! The new deadline for submissions is December 14, 2018.


The 2019 conference theme is “(Re)Writing Global Histories: Movement, Memory, and Materiality”. The conference will address a wide variety of themes within world history and public history, looking specifically at how histories of various ideas, materials, and people have been (re)written throughout human history. We encourage papers that think broadly about how global histories can be reinterpreted to include voices that have been historically overlooked, and those that explore these issues within narrow and broad contexts.


We invite graduate students in history programs and other associated disciplines to present work on any of these topics and more. We welcome and encourage papers that deal with these issues in interdisciplinary ways, as well as those engaging with the digital humanities. We also encourage the submission of pre-organized panel proposals. Faculty are invited to volunteer as chair/commentators in their research areas.
