The History Graduate Student Organization and the Sigma Rho Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at Texas A&M University are proud to announce our 2017 graduate and undergraduate history student conference. The conference will take place on March 31 and April 1, 2017. This conference is an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to showcase their research in front of their peers and experts from a variety of historical fields.

The theme for this year’s conference is “History from All Perspectives.” This will be an inclusive conference, promoting research in the areas of social, military, cultural, diplomatic, political, environmental, local, and indigenous history. We are accepting paper proposals regarding any geographical region and featuring research on any historical period or topic. Presenters do not have to be members of Phi Alpha Theta to participate. We strongly encourage submissions from students from departments across the humanities and social sciences, such as Sociology, Anthropology, Digital Humanities, English, Political Science, and more.

Undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in presenting are asked to submit a 250 word (maximum) abstract and curriculum vitae by Saturday, January 14, 2017. Notification of acceptance will occur by Wednesday, February 1, 2017 and accepted applicants will have until Tuesday, March 7, 2017 to submit completed papers (not to exceed ten pages). Any Ph.D. students interested in serving as commentators for undergraduate panels in their respective fields should submit a one-page CV by Wednesday, February 8, 2017. All submissions and correspondence should be submitted to tamuhistoryconference2017@gmail.com

A panel of judges will select the best overall Ph.D., M.A., and undergraduate papers to receive awards in recognition of excellence. For more conference details, please visit: http://history.tamu.edu
