CFP: OAH 2019 Lightning Round

Chelsea Gibson's picture

SHGAPE is organizing a lightning round session on the Gilded Age and Progressive era. We are looking for graduate students or other emerging scholars to participate. A lightning round is a 90 minute session meant to highlight emerging scholarship in a field. Each scholar has 5 minutes to give their “elevator pitch” of their research in quick succession and then the floor will be open for discussion, which a senior scholar will moderate.  Your research can be at any stage, as long as you can articulate it.

If you are interested in participating, please send a title and an abstract of your work to Cynthia Heider at
