A CALL FOR PAPERS: Deadline Extension: January 6, 2014 “Memory, Memorials and Media: Re-Imagining World History” The Northeastern History Graduate Student Association (HGSA) invites proposal submissions for its 6th annual graduate student conference to be held March 22-23, 2014 at Northeastern University, Boston MA. The 2014 conference title is “Memory, Memorials, and Media: Re-Imagining World History.” With this interdisciplinary theme, we hope to explore how memory is made, used, preserved, and accessed through a wide variety of mediums around the world and over time. We are particularly interested in how the collection of memory and the act of memorialization can be influenced by technology. Submissions may engage directly with a variety of themes including: concepts of identity; places of contested memory; the capture, documentation, or display of memory; the role of historians, librarians, archivists, and teachers in the act of preservation and pedagogy; acts of commemoration, designation, rectification, and obliteration. We also welcome papers that address themes such as nostalgia, imperialism and postcolonial studies, education and public engagement, cultural geography, psychology, art, literature and media studies—and that do so in trans-disciplinary or interdisciplinary ways. We invite graduate students in degree programs in history and other disciplines to present work on any of these topics or on others that address the conference themes. We recognize that many graduate students, particularly those working in public history and digital history fields, often have projects that do not necessarily lend themselves to a traditional paper presentation. Therefore, we are encouraging those students to submit poster proposals. You may submit both a paper and a poster submission. We also welcome panel proposals. Faculty are invited to volunteer as chair/commentators in their research areas. Logistics/Conference Details: When: March 22-23, 2014 Where: Northeastern University, Boston MA Keynote: Dan Cohen, founding executive director of the Digital Public Library of America (formerly of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University).
