Tri-University Conference 2023

"Imagine" text on mosaic with conference title: Imagining a New History: Interventions in Historical Research"
The work of graduate students is essential in re-imagining and reinvigorating the field of history. Graduate students bring new interventions into their respective fields, challenging, questioning, or building upon the work of established scholars. The 2023 Tri-U Conference makes space for graduate students to share how their research is re-imagining the discipline and creating interventions in their field.
