Looking Back and Leaping Forward: Perseverance in Times of Crisis
March 5-6, 2021
Virtual Event on Teams
Call for Proposals
The Tri-University Graduate Program in History invites submissions for its 2021 annual conference: “Looking Back and Leaping Forward: Perseverance in Times of Crisis."
At this moment, our future seems filled with uncertainty. However, in the face of great adversity and darkness, humanity has always found ways to inspire, to persevere, and to look forward with vision. Our job as historians is to learn from those that came before us. Papers from a wide range of historical backgrounds and perspectives will be accepted, and emphasis will be placed on the unique and inspiring ways that people have overcome barriers. This conference is also an acknowledgement that sometimes we need to look back before we can leap forward.
Submit your paper's title and a 250-word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are organizing a panel of three or four papers, also provide a brief panel summary alongside your individual submissions. All presenters should include a short bio.
Submission Deadline: Monday, January 25, 2021. EXTENDED TO SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2021.
We look forward to your submissions!
Note: In addition to sessions during the day on Saturday March 6, there will be virtual social events on Friday evening and Saturday evening.
