For graduate student readers of the Global History Blog, this recent call for applications is for you. The students of the Global History MA program at Humboldt University Berlin and Free University Berlin have announced “Global History Student Conference 2018” in Berlin. This graduate student-focused conference on global history provides the opportunity to enhance academic network and experience for early career researchers! The call explains more:
We have now opened our Call for Applications for next year’s GHSConference to be held on June 9th and 10th in Berlin!
We are excited about your proposals for presentations to be submitted on this website before February 1st, 2018.
The core of the conference’s program are the all-student panels, the keynote lecture will be given by Prof. Sebastian Conrad, head of Freie Universität’s Center for Global History and we will offer several workshops to familiarize you with alternative approaches to studying and presenting history.
We invite you to submit research projects of different time periods, crossing geographical but also disciplinary boundaries. The goal is to exchange experiences and to work together in an open and non-competitive way which is why we explicitly invite undergraduate students to apply: if you have ever written a paper or essay in this field, this is the perfect place to present it!
You find all further information in the actual Call for Applications, if any questions remain unanswered, please do not hesitate to email us to globalhistorystudentconference@ .
Please share this call with your friends and co-students, we are looking forward to reading your abstracts!
