The Departments of History and International Studies invite practitioners and scholars of various disciplines to submit a 300-word proposal and a one-page CV for individual papers, roundtables, or panels for a conference to be held at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York, on March 13-14, 2020.  Graduate students and individuals at the post-graduate/professional level should feel free to apply. The submission deadline is February 1, 2020.   Please address all correspondence to “Conference Committee Organizers” at
