13th Annual Texas A&M University History Conference “Between Conflict and Connection”

13th Annual Texas A&M University History Conference “Between Conflict and Connection

February 17-18, 2023

Call for Papers

The History Graduate Student Organization at Texas A&M University is proud to announce our 13th annual graduate and undergraduate history student conference. This year’s conference will take place on February 17th and 18th, 2023. This conference is an opportunity for students to showcase their research in front of their peers, as well as experts from a variety of historical fields.

The theme for this year's conference is "Between Conflict and Connection." This conference seeks scholarly discussion on the significance of historical interactions, both peaceful and violent, and the ways in which these developments continue to impact our present time. In selecting this theme, the conference focuses on histories of struggle, compromise, and identity. Exploring the ways in which historical interactions of people and events generated both division and interrelation continues to shed valuable light on the nature of communal, national, and transnational relations. We welcome papers that examine how conflict has torn some nations and peoples apart, while bringing others together. Scholars whose research highlights nonviolent conflict, such as political strife, trade wars, embargos, and more are encouraged to apply as well. Papers that explore histories of conflict and connection centered on events, the environment, nonhuman actors, inventions, and processes are also welcome. Overall, this conference encourages conversations and research that explore human conflict, connection, and the middle ground in between.
