CSU Fresno 21st Annual History Graduate Symposium

Saturday, April 18, 2020




The History Graduate Student Association (HGSA) at California State University, Fresno announces the 21st Annual History Graduate Student Symposium, which will be held on Saturday, April 18th, 2020 in Fresno, California. 


HGSA is now accepting papers from graduate students in any field of historical inquiry, but especially those demonstrating innovative and/or interdisciplinary approaches. 


Please submit a 100-word proposal and a current curriculum vitae to HGSA at fresnostatehgsa@gmail.com by March 23rd, 2020


HGSA is honored to announce that the keynote speaker at the symposium will be Dr. Kariann Yokota, Professor of History at the University of Colorado, Denver.  Dr. Yokota teaches courses on Colonial & Early America, Ethnic Studies, Transatlantic History, Material & Visual Culture, Transpacific Culture, Cultural Studies, American Studies, and Asian American Studies. Her widely acclaimed book, Unbecoming British, shows that political independence from Britain fueled anxieties among the Americans about their desire to emulate the mother country. Dr. Yokota explores the process of adopting a new national character by ‘unbecoming’ what had made Americans British subjects before independence. 


The 21st Annual History Graduate Student Symposium is sponsored by Associated Students, Inc., the College of Social Sciences, and the Department of History at California State University, Fresno.
