The History Graduate Student Association (HGSA) at California State University, Long Beach is pleased to announce a call for papers for its fourth annual conference that will explore challenging dominant narratives in history. The conference is intended to offer graduate students the opportunity to present original research and promote interdisciplinary and innovative scholarship. The conference aims to provide redefinitions, historical contexts, significances, and/or consequences of challenging a dominant historical narrative. All fields are welcome. The conference will be held on Friday, November 20, online.
The History Graduate Student Association encourages graduate students who study riots, strikes, and conspiracies across disciplines to submit 250-300 word abstracts and 50-75 word bios in pdf format to HGSA.CSULB@gmail.com with the subject “Conference Submission.” The paper you wish to present will need to challenge the dominant narrative of a topic, theory, or field. We ask that you not submit any papers that do not fit within this theme. Your abstract should include your argument, methodology, theoretical underpinnings, historiography, and evidence (where applicable), and a sentence on how you understand your paper to fit into the theme of the conference. Your bios should include your name, research field, and any pertinent information (research interests, etc.) that you would like to be read when your conference panel is introduced.
All proposals are due by October 23rd and those accepted will be informed by October 30th.
Please direct any questions you may have to the HGSA email: HGSA.CSULB@gmail.com. The president of HGSA (Conner McCombs) will respond. Good luck!
