North Carolina History Graduate Student Conference


Now in its eleventh year, the North Carolina Graduate Student History Conference enables student panelists the opportunity to present their research in a formal, professional setting, engage the ideas of their peers, and to receive comments from nationally recognized faculty from within the Research Triangle. The conference is student run and organized through the NCSU History Graduate Student Association.

The graduate student history conference is open to all history graduate students. Individual paper proposals are welcome on any historical topic and time period, including public history.

What Students
Are Saying

With the resources of three major research universities (NCSU, UNC and Duke) at your disposal, the personalized attention you receive, and the brilliant faculty who work with you one-on-one, pursuing graduate study in History at NCSU is a wonderful opportunity.  I feel incredibly lucky to be part of a program that goes out of its way to create opportunities for its graduate students: through funding, travel fellowships, and research opportunities with some of the leading faculty in their field.
