Call for Papers
THE DALHOUSIE GRADUATE HISTORY SOCIETY
‘HISTORY ACROSS THE DISCIPLINES’ CONFERENCE
GUTS, GLAMOUR, AND GOSSIP
The Dalhousie Graduate History Society invites graduate students from all branches of the humanities and social sciences to submit proposals for our 13th annual ‘History Across the Disciplines’ Conference, to take place at
Halifax, Nova Scotia
March 19th to 21st, 2010
The theme of this year's conference is Guts, Glamour, and Gossip. Especially relevant to this theme are issues concerning authority and government, rebellion and resistance, as well as rhetoric and popular culture as they continually define the notions of heroics, social banditry, martyrdom, and celebrity. There are no temporal or geographical limitations to this theme, and all proposals will be considered.
Interested applicants should submit a 250-word abstract to email@example.com by January 15th, 2010. Append to the abstract your area of study, degree level and year, along with contact information. Presentations are between 10 to 15 minutes in length, so a 7 to 8 page paper will suffice. A copy of the finished paper must be received by February 5th, 2010 in order to be considered for the John Flint Prize for best paper/presentation; this prize includes a $250 honorarium.
In addition to panels, there will be a keynote address by Dr. Andrea McKenzie on the evening of March 19th, to be followed by a reception. On Saturday night, experience local Halifax culture in the informal setting of a maritime pub.
