Thirteenth Annual Graduate Student Conference
|Venue:||Graham Center 150|
The Department of History Graduate Student Association (DOHGSA) is hosting its thirteenth annual conference on Friday, March 29. It is entitled “Among Four Shores: Change and Exchange in the Atlantic World.”
Throughout the day, graduate students will present their original research in Graham Center (GC) 150. The group of panelists includes graduate students from the Department of History as well as aspiring researchers from outside FIU. The panels cover a broad range of research within the versatile field of Atlantic History such as colonialism, conflict and ideology.
DOHGSA is proud to present Dr. Andrew Isenberg, who teaches environmental history and the American West at Temple University, as this year’s keynote speaker. In his address, he will discuss his current work on Wyatt Earp, a seminal figure of the American West in the nation’s collective imagination. Dr. Isenberg will also participate in a roundtable discussion with faculty members from FIU and other institutions. The group of scholars will debate what the study of individuals can tell researchers in History and adjacent academic fields about larger trends and transformations in the past. DOHGSA will provide meals and refreshments throughout the day. The conference will conclude with a reception in the Department of History.
