Call for Posters
Loyola University Chicago History Graduate Student Conference:
Morning Poster Session
November 18, 2017
Loyola University Chicago Lake Shore Campus, Chicago, IL
Deadline: October 27th, 2017
Graduate and undergraduate students in any field of historical study are invited to submit proposals to present during the morning poster session. Posters may feature original research or showcase public history projects. Presentations related to the conference theme are especially encouraged. This year’s theme, Hearing Silences, deals with gaps in the historical record, especially those related to marginalized subjects. We welcome original research on any topic of historical interest, but we encourage presenters to consider the ways in which historical silences hinder, motivate, or inform their scholarship. Certificates will be awarded to the top graduate and undergraduate poster presenters.
Proposals should include the submitter’s name, contact information, institutional affiliation(s), a one page abstract of the poster (with a title), and a sentence listing up to three historical subjects your paper addresses (e.g. French history, sport history, gender). Please also include a brief biographical statement indicating your academic status along with a return address and current email address. Finally, indicate if your display will require any digital or audiovisual accommodations. Please note that submissions will be accepted as time and space permit.
Email your proposal as a PDF attachment to the HGSA Conference Committee at: HGSA@luc.edu. Use the subject line Re: CFPosters Loyola History Grad Conference.
