The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference will host “Spheres of Change and Challenge: The Local and the Global” at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan on April 17 and 18, 2020.

We invite graduate and advanced undergraduate students from the social sciences and the humanities to submit proposals for papers or panels that adopt an interdisciplinary or transnational approach. However, we are also seeking papers or panels that approach historical topics in more traditional ways. All submissions must be based on original research. In keeping with the theme of the conference, individual papers will be organized into individually chaired panels that cross spatial, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries. The IGHSC will present prizes for the best papers in several categories.

Send abstract (250-350 words) and a short curriculum vitae as an attachment to histconf@cmich.edu. Preference will be given to papers and panels received during the early submission period which ends January 5, 2020. The final deadline for abstracts is February 16, 2020. Full papers are due March 15, 2020.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Pomeranz, University Professor of Modern Chinese History at the University of Chicago
