Thirteenth Annual Southeast Regional Graduate Student Conference

“The Pursuit of Power”

March 3, 2023 Call for Papers

The Florida State University History Graduate Student Association is pleased to announce the thirteenth annual Southeast Regional Graduate Student Conference. The event will be held on Friday March 3, 2023 in person at Florida State University.

The theme for this year’s conference is “The Pursuit of Power.” We are interested in papers that explore states, institutions, and individual pursuits of power and control. Power uses a variety of means such as discrimination, colonialism, and imperialism in order to subjugate and oppress. There is also power in resistance to these forces and the struggle of power is often seen throughout history. While we highly encourage interacting with this theme, the committee welcomes papers from any thematic, chronological, and geographic perspective.

Graduate students at any level in the humanities and social sciences are encouraged to participate in this collegial environment. This conference seeks to both serve as a great starting conference for new graduate students and as a ground for testing ideas and receiving feedback from peers and senior academics for advanced students. Awards for excellence will be presented to the best overall Ph.D. and MA papers.

The deadline for applications is December 16, 2022.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent via email by January 13, 2023. Accepted presenters will have until February 10, 2023 to submit their papers, which should not be longer than ten pages. We accept both individual papers and complete panels. Individual submissions should include a 300-word (maximum) abstract and a curriculum vitae (CV). Panel proposals should include a 200-word description of the panel’s topic as well as individual abstracts and CVs. Please email all submissions and correspondence to More information about the conference can be found at
