The History Graduate Student Association of Florida State University invites graduate students in the humanities and social sciences to join us for our eleventh annual Southeast Regional Graduate Student Conference to be held on April 3, 2020 at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. 

Our theme this year is "Otherness and Unheard Narratives." We are interested in papers that explore notions of alienation, silencing, and discrimination. Our hope is to explore narratives from under researched areas or familiar narratives told from unusual or unexpected angles. While we are particularly interested in these themes, the committee also welcomes papers from any thematic, chronological, or geographic perspective. 

Graduate students at any level in the humanities and social sciences are encouraged to participate in this collegial environment. Our conference is an opportunity for first- or second-year students to explore a conference setting, meet fellow graduate students, and visit a new department. Advanced students will find fertile ground for testing their ideas and for receiving feedback from peers and senior academics. 

The deadline for submission is January 8, 2020. Individual paper submissions should include a 300-word abstract and CV. Panel submissions should include these and a 200-word description of the panel. Please direct all responses to
