Spheres of Change and Challenge: The Local and the Global
The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference will host “Spheres of Change and Challenge: The Local and Global” at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, on April 17 - 18, 2020. We invite graduate students from across the social sciences and the humanities to submit proposals for papers or panels that adopt an interdisciplinary or transnational approach but we are also seeking papers or panels that approach historical topics in more traditional ways. All submissions must be based on original research. In keeping with the theme of the conference, individual papers will be organized into panels that cross spatial, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries. The IGHSC will present cash prizes for the best papers in several categories.
2020 Keynote Speaker
Dr. Kenneth Pomeranz, University Professor of Modern Chinese History at the University of Chicago will give the 2020 keynote address.
