Submission Deadlines:

The early paper submission deadline is December 19, 2016.

The final paper submission deadline is February 8, 2017.  

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. 

Preference will be given to papers and panels received during the early submission period which ends December 19, 2016. The final deadline for abstract submission is February 8, 2017.    

Keynote Speaker:

We are proud to announce that the IGHSC’s keynote speaker for the conference will be delivered by Professor John Merriman, Yale University.

Our annual conference continues to offer an intellectually rewarding and professional experience, and we hope you will join us.
