2020 Graduate Student History Conference Cancelled

It's with the deepest regret that, due to the coronavirus (Covid19) outbreak, the NC State History Department and HGSA have concluded today that we have no choice but to cancel our 2020 Graduate Student History Conference in Raleigh. Registrants and presenters will receive a formal letter from the HGSA shortly.

Call for Papers

The History Graduate Student Association (HGSA) at NC State is excited to announce our 2020 Graduate Student History Conference. The conference will take place on Saturday March 21, 2020. The conference provides a welcoming environment for scholarly interaction and professional development for new or experienced scholars and is open to all graduate students in history and related fields. Each presentation will last approximately 15-20 minutes, with each panel followed by comments from area faculty and general discussion.

We welcome all submissions in history, public history, digital humanities, and interdisciplinary fields. We also welcome panel submissions, with panels of three people. 

Proposals of no more than 250 words should be sent together with a CV including the applicant’s name, institution, and a sentence listing up to three historical subjects that your paper addresses (e.g. American history, intellectual history, gender). Panel submissions should also include a brief description of the panel itself. Please submit proposals by December 9. 

Questions regarding applications or the conference may be directed to HGSA co-presidents Farris Smith (lfsmith4@ncsu.edu) or Nathan Sperry (ncsperry@ncsu.edu).
