19th Annual
University of Maine/ University of New Brunswick
International Graduate Student Conference

New Voices in History

September 21st to 22nd, 2018

The history graduate students of the University of Maine and University of New Brunswick wish to announce the 19th Annual International Graduate Student Conference on September 21-22, 2018. In past years, the conference has attracted participants from a number of universities throughout the United States and Canada. This year’s event will be hosted on the University of Maine campus in Orono, Maine.

We invite all interested graduate students, from any university or college, to submit proposals on any topic related to the theme of New Voices in History. New Voices in History intends to illuminate the voices of the newest generation of historians as well as research topics that aim to bring to life voices that have been silenced throughout history. The selection committee will accept submissions outside of this theme as well. Ultimately, this conference is designed to offer graduate students the opportunity to share their research before an audience of their peers and foster international professional relationships.

Dr. Lisa Todd will deliver the keynote address titled “Fighting Sexual and Racial ‘Mixture’ in the Shadow of War and Genocide: German Southwest Africa, 1904-1915” on September 21st, 2018. Dr. Todd teaches and supervises in the fields of Modern Germany, European History, Gender and Sexuality, and War and Society at the University of New Brunswick. She is the Coordinator and Academic Advisor for the Gender and Women’s Studies interdisciplinary program at the university, a member of the Gregg Centre for the Study of War Society and is the Director of the Network for the Study of Civilians, Soldiers, and Society.
