Mock Conference for History Ph.D. Students

The Graduate Workshop in Modern History is sponsoring the second mock conference for History Ph.D. students. The mock conference will be held on Friday, November 15 from 1:00pm-2:25pm in the Humphrey Center, room 15.

Six graduate students will offer abridged versions of presentations for upcoming conferences, including the SSHA annual meeting in Chicago later this month. The papers are not being pre-circulated, but they hope to hold a lively discussion both about the material presented and conference presenting more generally.
Please go to support history students Hui-Han Jin, Kan Li, Matt Nelson, Ellen Manovich, Pedro Quijada, and Elizabeth Venditto (a detailed schedule is below). Anyone interested in historical methods and questions, as well as students curious about presenting at various conferences in the future are very welcome.
A late lunch of pizza and drinks will be served.

• Hui-Han Jin & Kan Li - "Household textile production and gender and generational dynamics in Europe and China in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-centuries: Comparing across diverse regimes and their records"
• Matt Nelson - "Family Farm Labor in the United States in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries"
