The 2009 Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference sponsored by the Department of History at the University of Colorado at Boulder has announced its annual call for papers. The conference will be held September 12-13, 2009 in Boulder, CO. Submission deadline: June 20, 2009.

2009 Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference
The graduate students of the Department of History at the University of Colorado at Boulder are pleased to announce the 2009 Rocky Mountain Interdisciplinary History Conference. This academic conference provides a congenial atmosphere for students to present papers, network with fellow graduate students, gain experience in public speaking, and attend workshops specifically tailored to graduate student interests. First-time presenters are especially encouraged to participate. If you are working on an interesting project that deals with a historical topic, this conference provides an excellent opportunity to share your work.
Please submit a one-page abstract of the paper and a current c.v. The abstract should clearly express an original argument rooted in extensive primary source research. Ideally, the paper will fill a void in the historical record. Please email your abstract and c.v. to: rmihc@colorado.edu, or send by mail to: RMIHC, Dept. of History, UCB 234, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO 80309-0234.
We welcome submissions from graduate students working in any discipline. Past participants have come from fields as diverse as history, political science, cultural studies, film, art history, philosophy, comparative literature, and theatre. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
*Regional, National, Transnational, or International
*Race, Ethnicity, and Cultural Identity
*History of Ideas
*Environmental History
*History of Science, Medicine, and Technology
*Diplomatic History
Presentations will be strictly limited to 15 minutes. Every paper will receive commentary by another graduate student, and a faculty member will moderate each panel session. Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session.
*Papers should be 10–15 pages, not including
endnotes and bibliography.
*Attendees will be asked to vote for the Best Paper
Award. The winner will be recognized on the
RMIHC website and will receive a small prize.
