2022 Conference

“Revisiting and Reimagining: Heritage, Identity, and History”

Friday April 1, 2022

Florida State University 

Tallahassee, Florida

The History Graduate Student Association at Florida State University is pleased to host the 12th Annual Southeast Regional Graduate Student Conference on April 1, 2022 in Tallahassee, Florida. The theme for the conference is “Revisiting and Reimagining: Heritage, Identity, and History.” Conference panels will explore history through the lenses of identity and heritage, with special emphasis on the ways in which people remember and construct a collective past from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. While we are particularly interested in these themes, the committee also welcomes papers from any thematic, chronological, and geographic perspective. The conference is designed to foster a collaborative academic environment between and among graduate students of various disciplines and with faculty.

Graduate students at any level in the humanities and social sciences are encouraged to participate in this collegial environment. Our conference offers an opportunity for students to explore a conference setting, meet fellow graduate students, and visit a new department. Advanced students will find fertile ground for testing their ideas and for receiving feedback from peers and senior academics. We hope you will join us.
