Graduate Workshop in Modern History Call for Papers
The Graduate Workshop in Modern History (GWMH) is currently soliciting papers for its 2009 spring semester schedule. If you have a seminar paper, MA thesis, or other project you would like to submit to a journal or present at a conference, the GWMH is a perfect place to receive useful and interdisciplinary feedback in a low-pressure atmosphere. The GWMH is a graduate-student run workshop that emphasizes practical and constructive feedback in an informal setting on papers aimed for an audience outside of a typical seminar (e.g. things you would like to publish or present at a conference).
Any papers that use historical methodology and focus on the modern period (very loosely defined as 1840s to the present) are welcome. The GWMH accepts papers from any geographic area and any discipline.
1) a general time during the semester when you would prefer to present your paper (i.e. January, April, anytime, etc.). This semester, the workshop will meet at noon on Fridays,
2) a working title for the paper you wish to present, and,
3) a list of three professors who you would want to potentially serve as the faculty commentator for your paper. Faculty commentators initiate discussion of the paper being discussed that week. The GWMH has also been a
venue where professors and graduate students who have mutual interests yet don't know each other can meet.
We look forward to a semester of interesting papers and conversation. Check out our GWMH blog at
