The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference will host “Time, Place and Space” at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, on April 8-9, 2016. We invite graduate students from across the social sciences and the humanities to submit proposals for papers or panels that adopt an interdisciplinary or transnational approach but 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 panels that cross spatial, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries. The IGHSC will present cash prizes for the best papers in several categories. 

Send abstract (250-350 words) and a short curriculum vita as an attachment to Preference will be given to papers and panels received during the early submission period which ends December 19, 2015. The final deadline for submission is February 8, 2016.
