UMass Graduate History Association conference, March 8-9, 2019: "The Routes of History: Knowing Pasts, Envisioning Futures"

Event Details

End: January 15, 2019
More Info:

In any historical moment, people’s lives are affected by their knowledges and narratives of the past. History is not merely a record but felt experience: injustices, identities and memories at various collective levels, all inform conceptions of the past and commitments to the future.


This conference welcomes papers that investigate relations across history in community contexts and history as an institutional discipline. We welcome abstracts from diverse historical periods, geographical regions, frameworks, and methodologies. The conference seeks an interdisciplinary engagement on the nature of historical consciousness and its practice in cultures, politics, economies, and environments in any given context.


We ask applicants to submit a 250-300 word paper or panel proposal, a biography, and a short CV to by January 15th, 2019. Submissions should include: paper/panel title, abstract, and any technological requirements. Accepted applicants will be notified by January 28th. We will be awarding a number of prizes, if you wish to be considered, please submit your paper by February 28th. Please email your documents in a .pdf, .doc, or .docx format.
