The History Graduate Student Organization at Texas A&M University is proud to announce our 2019 graduate and undergraduate history student conference. The conference will take place on April 12-13, 2019. The theme for this year’s conference is “Resistance in Retrospect.” Our central focus is to create a scholarly discussion on resistance in its various forms such as armed resistance against a central authority, political activism, engagement of public discourse, or popular memory.
We encourage submissions from a wide variety of fields and academic disciplines to have an inclusive and interdisciplinary environment in which to have fruitful discussion. We are accepting paper proposals regarding any geographical region and featuring research on any historical period or topic.
Undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in presenting are asked to submit a 250 word (maximum) abstract and curriculum vitae by Monday, January 14, 2019. Notification of acceptance will occur by Monday, February 11, 2019 and accepted applicants will have until Friday, March 22, 2019 to submit completed papers (not to exceed ten pages). Any Ph.D. students interested in serving as commentators for undergraduate panels in their respective fields should submit a one-page CV by Monday, January 21, 2019.
