Graduate Student Symposium: Water and Wine: Disruption and Fluidity Over the Long Durée

March 15 - March 16

The 2019 UF History Graduate Symposium will honor the 90th anniversary of the first publication of the Annales Journal, which dramatically transformed the post-WWII historical field.

We invite graduate students to present their research influenced and inspired by, or disrupting, this varying legacy. In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of histoire totale and mentalités, which came to define the Annales School in the 1970s and 1980s, papers from all fields of the humanities that utilize an historical perspective are also encouraged to submit.The symposium will be organized around thematic panels that will be limited to an hour and a half. Each paper should not exceed 20 minutes in length, leaving time for discussion.

Interested graduate students should submit a 300-word abstract and one-page CV to Proposals must be submitted by January 11, 2019. All participants will be notified of participation by February 4, 2019.

On the evening of March 15, the symposium will be opened by Dr. Jack Davis, UF Professor of History and author of Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Gulf: The Making of An American Sea. The keynote address will be given on Saturday, March 16 by Dr. Magda Teter, Professor of History and the Shvidler Chair in Judaic Studies at Fordham University.
