The Northeastern History Graduate Student Association invites proposal submissions for its 7th annual graduate student conference to be held on March 21-22, 2015 at Northeastern University, Boston MA. The extended deadline for the conference is January 16, 2015.

The 2015 conference title is "Ghosts of History: Location, Relocation, and Dislocation in World History." Through this theme, we hope to investigate issues of place and space, migration, and identity – particularly, how identity is shaped by space and by removal (forced or willing) from that space. In keeping with these themes, we are interested in work that recovers voices traditionally absent from historical research.

Ashley N. Doonan / University of New Hampshire

I am seeking fellow panelists to present on a panel loosely based on trauma--from psychological perspectives to literary trauma theory. The work that I am hoping to present is focused on vicarious trauma--a trauma transmitted but not experienced directly.

Submissions need not be more than 300 words and may be emailed to me directly.

I also have set up an excellent chair for the panel, who has done a great deal with trauma theory in her dissertation.

Please feel free to contact me with further questions.

Book Project: Title: Rewriting Her Story: Critical Essays on the Female Subject in the Colonial and Postcolonial World
(Literary Criticism)
Call for Papers
The fragmented or hybrid nature of the postcolonial female subject demands its construction through subversion of both the colonial and the patriarchal discourse. These deconstructive moves within the texts are used to dismantle master narratives inspired by Eurocentric discourse and, at the same time, to call in question the logo centric categories upon which colonial discourses are based.
