The Department of History will be hosting a graduate student conference workshop on Tuesday evening, March 29th, 2016 at 6:00pm in the History Department library. This workshop is aimed at assisting first-, second-, and third-year graduate students who have little or no experience presenting papers at an academic conference. This workshop will be particularly useful for graduate students who will be presenting papers in the spring quarter 2016, but it is open to any graduate student who would like to workshop their conference presentation.
Papers will be the typical twenty minutes in length (approximately ten pages) with a ten-minute feedback session per paper. The discussion period will provide feedback on the content and the presentation, as well as questions that one might expect to be asked during the conference.
Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to Shawn Ragan at: email@example.com by Tuesday, March 1st, 2016.
