- HISTORIOGRAPHICAL INNOVATIONS: A Conference on Emerging Historical Practices
The McMaster University Department of History Conference Committee invites papers and panel proposals for our third annual graduate conference, which will be held on November 1st and 2nd, 2018 at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
Graduate students in the field of history and beyond are constantly looking for ways to advance historical research by using innovative theories and methodologies. With this year’s conference, “Historiographical Innovations: A Conference on Emerging Historical Practices,” we want to reflect such initiative. Today’s emerging scholars use decolonization, gender, transnational, and cultural lenses alongside methods applied from memory studies, digital humanities, public history, and oral histories as the foundations of their research. Why? Because such trans-, inter-, and multi-disciplinarity has, for many of us, become crucial to our historical practice. This choice to move beyond the discipline’s traditional boundaries has enabled graduate students to push the field into new directions while engaging with contemporary issues.
