Call for Papers

In.ter.stic.es: an intervening space or an interval in time
We mark the 10th anniversary of the McGill-Queen’s Graduate Conference in History by inviting graduate scholars from across the disciplines to submit papers on any history-related topic. Professor MacDougall’s address on history and health care policy encourages us to reflect on the uses of history outside of the academy and on the historical roots of present day issues – in other words, the interstices between the disciplines, between academic and professional life, and between the past and present.
We invite proposals from any geographic region or temporal period. Interdisciplinary submissions are welcome.
Please submit a 300-word abstract for a 20-minute paper as well as a one-page CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15, 2012.
