The Graduate History Association at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte is proud to announce that our 34th Annual Graduate Association Forum will take place on January 21 & 22, 2022. The forum is an excellent occasion for student scholars to showcase their research in front of their peers, as well as experts from a variety of historical fields. We are pleased to announce Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Book Prize winner and professor of U.S. history at Rutgers University, Dr. Tiffany M. Gill, as our keynote speaker, and Dr. Maren Ehlers, Honorable Mention for the John Whitney Hall Book Prize and professor of Japanese history at University of North Carolina at Charlotte, as our distinguished speaker.

The theme for this year's conference is "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Historical Narrative." As historians, we have a duty and obligation to bring historical accounts to light no matter where they happened or to whom they occurred. This forum encourages researchers to look at those places and peoples who have been marginalized in our fields and broaden our shared understanding of history by bringing their stories to life. Take this as a call-to-research to reconstruct a fuller picture of the past from all perspectives of the historical narrative. We look forward to hearing the fruitful results of your research as you examine new avenues in the study of the past.
