On behalf of the Dalhousie Graduate History Society, we wish to invite you to the 20th annual History Across the Disciplines Conference. This year's theme is "Revolutions: Challenging Society and the State". We will be discussing demographic, cultural, economic, religious, linguistic, legal, material, and gendered change in a variety of historical contexts. In addition, we welcome submissions from papers ranging in a variety of topics and disciplines. The History Across the Disciplines Conference encourages presentations that incorporate a specific historical technique in pursuing an analysis, or approach to a topic from within a specialized field.

Please submit a short abstract and a one-page CV to historyacrossthedisciplines@gmail.com no later than February 15th, 2018. Papers competing for the John Flint prize should be a maximum of twenty pages in length, while the committee recommends that presentation papers be between eight and ten pages in length, or suited to a 20 minute presentation. The John Flint prize ($250 honorarium) will be awarded to the paper that best demonstrates scholarly excellence. 

The opening keynote address will be presented by Professor Stephen Snobelen of the University of King's College on March 23rd at 6pm.
