Call for Papers

Submission Deadline June 6th, 2016

The graduate students of the Department of History at the University of Colorado Boulder are pleased to announce the seventeenth annual Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference. This academic conference provides a congenial atmosphere for students to present papers, network with fellow graduate students, gain experience in public speaking, and attend a professional development panel.  First-time presenters are especially encouraged to participate.

Please apply online at: https://www.tfaforms.com/407242.  Submit the abstract submission form, a one-page abstract of the paper, and a current CV (all files should be uploaded in .pdf). The abstract should clearly express an original argument rooted in extensive primary source research.

 

TOPICS

We welcome submissions with a historical element from graduate students working in any discipline. Exceptional undergraduate papers will be considered.  Past participants have come from fields as diverse as history, political science, economics, cultural studies, philosophy, comparative literature, film, art history, religion, anthropology, women and gender studies, geography, ethnic studies, and theatre. 

 

PRESENTATION DETAILS

Every paper will receive commentary by another graduate student, and a faculty member will moderate each panel session. Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session.

 

PRESENTATION REQUIREMENTS

Presentations will be strictly limited to 15 minutes, thus papers should be 8 pages in length, not including endnotes and bibliography.

There will be a small monetary award for the best conference paper.

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Miriam Kingsberg, Assistant Professor of History, University of Colorado Boulder.
