The Dalhousie Graduate History Society is delighted to present the 24th annual History Across the Disciplines Conference. It will be held ONLINE on March 24th-25th, 2023 in Halifax, Nova Scotia at Dalhousie University, located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. This year’s theme is “History Speaks: Silenced Narratives & Social Change.”

The conference aims to promote interdisciplinary discussion using History as a bridge. We welcome all scholarship that seeks to rethink, challenge, and complicate dominant narratives by exploring and giving space to marginalized voices. Please feel free to interpret the theme as you wish.

We invite graduate students from any disciplines to submit a 300-word abstract and a short personal biography to the conference committee no later than 11:59pm AST on Friday, March 10th, 2023. We also encourage a brief outline of how your work pertains to the theme. Successful applicants will be notified after the deadline. The best paper presented at this conference, as decided by a panel of graduate students and faculty members, will win the John Flint Prize (a $250 honorarium). To be considered for this prize, applicants must provide the conference committee with their final paper by Friday, March 10th, 2023. Presentations may be up to twenty minutes in length and will be held in English.

This will be an online event. However, following panel discussion on Saturday, presenters who are in the area are invited to experience local Halifax culture with us in an informal setting. Details to follow.

For more information, please feel free to contact the conference committee, at dalconference2023@gmail.com. We look forward to reviewing your abstracts!
