Eleventh Annual Loyola University Chicago History Graduate Student Conference

November 15, 2014

Loyola University Chicago Water Tower Campus, Chicago, IL

Loyola's History Graduate Student Association hosts a conference for history graduate students every November.  The conference attracts graduate students from across the country who come together to present their work on a wide variety of topics.

Masters and doctoral graduate students in any field of historical study are invited to submit proposals to present individual research papers at Loyola’s Eleventh Annual History Graduate Student Conference.  Panel applications and individual papers focusing on borderlands and transnational studies, urban history, gender history, and public history are especially encouraged.  We also welcome papers about history projects in the digital humanities. The goal of this conference is to provide an opportunity for students to gain experience presenting original research projects and to receive feedback from their peers on their work.

Prizes of $150 and $50 will be awarded to the top two conference presentations.  Loyola graduate students are ineligible for these monetary awards, but an honorable mention will be given to the top Loyola presentation.

Individual proposals should include: submitter’s name, contact information, institutional affiliation(s), a one page abstract of the paper (with a title), and a brief biographical statement indicating your academic status along with a return address and current e-mail address.  Panel proposals should include the above as well as a brief description of the panel itself.  Please note that submissions will be accepted as time and space permit.  For more information please visit or our department webpage at

Deadline for submissions is Monday, August 25, 2014.  E-mail proposals as an attachment to the HGSA Conference Committee at: or mail to:
