New Frontiers Graduate Conference in History 2018 – Call For Papers

Submitted on Tuesday, January 09, 2018

New Frontiers is seeking proposals for the twenty-second annual New Frontiers in Graduate History Conference, to be held February 22-24, 2018 at York University in Toronto. The theme this year is “(Un)mapping Histories”.

The subject of mapping questions how acts of naming and defining by various historical actors create maps and networks – some visible and tangible, others covert and imagined. Unmapping highlights the tension between theory, discourse and materiality. These broad themes can be applied to a variety of subjects and geographic fields.

Applicants are invited to submit either individual papers or panels of two to three papers.

For individual papers, please submit a maximum 250-word abstract. For panel proposals, include a maximum 200-word panel abstract explaining the rationale for the panel. Submissions must be accompanied by at least three keywords and a short biographical statement. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2018.  Please direct submissions to:

Maryann Buri, Alexander Hughes, and Noa Nahmias
