Call For Papers

Every year, Dalhousie’s Graduate History Society hosts a conference to foster critical thinking and meaningful discussion on the discipline. This year’s theme of consilience hopes to spark discussion on the importance of interdisciplinary research. The importance of consilience is fostering a dialogue between disciplines that traditionally have little interaction. In this case, the more we know, the more we grow, and this year’s conference intends to highlight how interdisciplinary approaches to history should be celebrated, providing a sense of unity in knowledge. The 25th annual conference will be a hybrid event in Halifax at Dalhousie University. Consilience will consider graduate-level papers in any area of study featuring an overlap with history. Papers will be evaluated according to the following criteria: quality of research, creativity, originality, and clarity.

Those interested in submitting must send an abstract of 300 words that provides a clear overview of research objectives, methodology, and key findings by January 19 2024. We also encourage a brief outline of how your work pertains to the theme and a short personal biography. Full papers should be in English, between 5,000 to 8,000 words (including references). The best paper presented at the conference, as decided by a panel of graduate students and faculty members, will win the John Flint Prize ($250)
