The HGSA at Florida State University has sponsored an annual conference since 2008, typically in late March. The conference brings together graduate students from history and other humanities and social science departments at Florida State and other institutions. It allows “up-and-coming” scholars a congenial environment to build interpersonal networks within the discipline of history and beyond and to gain experience presenting their research in a professional setting.
This year the Ninth Southeast Regional Graduate Student Conference will take place on March 3, 2016. The conference theme is “Oppression and Resistance” and will feature a keynote speech by noted diplomatic and military historian Professor Emeritus Gerhard Weinberg of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Call for Papers for this year’s conference is officially OPEN.
