Presenting opportunity - History Conference

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone--I hope your holiday weekends went well and that the end-of-semester crunch isn't too bad :)

This is my first post, and I'm writing because I see many, many humanities students on gradcafe wishing for opportunities to get presenting experience or feedback on their research/writing. I'm a first-year M.A. student in history at NC State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, and my department is hosting a Graduate History Conference next semester which may be of interest. Here are the details from the official call for papers:

"The 2016 Graduate Student History Conference will be held on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 2. 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 20 minutes, and each panel will be followed by comments from area faculty as well as general discussion. The theme of this year’s conference is “place.” There is no geographical focus, and scholars of any historical places and spaces are encouraged to apply.

Proposals of no more than 250 words should be sent together with a short biography including the applicant’s name, institution, and field of specialization to history.ncsu.edu/grad/conference.php by December 11, 2015. Presenters are urged to seek funding from their home departments and outside sources if possible. Limited funding for travel and accommodations is available for applicants who demonstrate need on the online abstract submission form."


I hope this will prove helpful to anyone wanting a simple chance to get their work before an audience. If you have any questions, please let me know in a reply or at ambenton@ncsu.edu. Thanks!
