The History Graduate Student Organization and the Sigma Rho Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at Texas A&M University are proud to announce our 2018 graduate and undergraduate history student conference. The conference will take place on March 23-24, 2018. This conference is an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to showcase their research in front of their peers and experts from a variety of historical fields.
The theme for this year's conference is "Conflicts and Resolutions." Our central focus for this conference is to create a scholarly discussion on different conflicts, both historical and academic, and the resolutions, or lack thereof, that resulted. We encourage submissions from a wide variety of fields and academic disciplines to have an inclusive and interdisciplinary environment in which to have a fruitful discussion. We are accepting paper proposals regarding any geographical region and featuring research on any historical period or topic. Presenters do not have to be part of Phi Alpha Theta to participate.
Undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in presenting are asked to submit a 250 word (maximum) abstract and curriculum vitae by Friday, December 15, 2017. Notification of acceptance will occur by Wednesday, February 1, 2018 and accepted applicants will have until Tuesday, March 7, 2018 to submit completed papers (not to exceed ten pages). Any Ph.D. students interested in serving as commentators for undergraduate panels in their respective fields should submit a one-page CV by Wednesday, February 8, 2018. All submissions and correspondence should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A panel of judges will select the best overall Ph.D., M.A., and undergraduate papers to receive awards in recognition of excellence. For more conference details, please visit: history.tamu.edu.
