The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference will host “Controversy and Consensus: Shifting Places, Patterns, and Perspectives” at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, April 16 and 17, 2021.

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 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 Preference will be given to papers and panels received during the early submission period which ends January 9, 2021. The final deadline for abstracts is February 20, 2021. Full papers are due March 13, 2021.
