CFP: Graduate Workshop in Modern History Fall Semester

The Graduate Workshop in Modern History (GWMH) is currently soliciting papers for its 2012 fall semester schedule. If you have a seminar paper, dissertation chapter, MA thesis, or other project you would like to submit to a journal or present at a conference, the GWMH is a perfect place to receive useful and interdisciplinary feedback in an informal atmosphere. If you are interested, please continue reading for more details.

Any papers that use historical methodology and focus on the modern period (very loosely defined as the early nineteenth century to the present) are welcome. The GWMH accepts papers from any geographic area and any discipline, and we value comparative and interdisciplinary work.
If you are interested in presenting, please email Emily Bruce (bruce088@umn.edu) and/or Ellen Manovich (manov003@umn.edu) and indicate:
1) a general time during the semester when you would prefer to present your paper (i.e. September, November, anytime, etc.). This semester, the workshop will meet at 12:00 noon on Fridays. Though this fall will be busy with several excellent papers already on the schedule, there are still some slots available in September and December. We're also happy to discuss reserving space for you in the spring semester.
2) a working title for the paper you wish to present.
3) a list of 2 or 3 professors who might serve as the faculty commentator for your paper. Faculty commentators initiate discussion of the paper being discussed that week. The GWMH has been a venue where professors and graduate students who have mutual interests yet do not know each other can meet.
We look forward to a semester of interesting papers and conversation.
