Graduate Workshop in Modern History Call for Papers Fall 2009

The Graduate Workshop in Modern History (GWMH) is currently soliciting papers for its 2009 fall 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 an informal atmosphere.

Any papers that use historical methodology and focus on the modern period (very loosely defined as the early nineteenth century to the present) are welcome. The GWMH accepts papers from any geographic area and any discipline, and we value comparative and interdisciplinary work.

If you are interested in presenting, please email Emily Bruce (bruce088@umn.edu) and/or Alan Fujishin (fuji0070@umn.edu) and indicate:

1) a general time during the semester when you would prefer to present your paper (i.e. October, December, anytime, etc.). This semester, the workshop will meet at 12:30 PM on Fridays.

2) a working title for the paper you wish to present.

3) a list of three professors who might serve as the faculty commentator for your paper. Faculty commentators initiate discussion of the paper being discussed that week. The GWMH has been a venue where professors and graduate students who have mutual interests yet do not know each other can meet.
