Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference, Newberry Library, Chicago 2022 - deadline 11 October

Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference, Newberry Library, Chicago 2022 - deadline 11 October

Submission Deadline 11 October 2021

The annual graduate student multidisciplinary conference, organised and run by advanced doctoral students, has become a premier opportunity for early career scholars to present papers, participate in discussions, and develop collaborations across the field of late medieval, Renaissance, and early modern studies at the Newberry Library in Chicago. Participants from a wide variety of disciplines find a supportive and collegial forum for their work, meet future colleagues from other institutions and disciplines, and become familiar with the Newberry and its resources. The conference can be used for a research visit in the library. The 2022 conference call/programme can be found here: 2022 Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference -- Newberry

Over the last 15 years, Aberdeen PhD students have been regularly chosen to either present their papers or even organise sections of the conference itself. As part of the Newberry Consortium membership and strong collaborative links with the Newberry, Aberdeen's Centre for Early Modern Studies (CEMS) has been able to support our students to enable them to travel to Chicago to attend / organise the annual conferences.

Students who want to train their presenting skills and benefit from this arrangement should come forward. The topics can range from anything form the late medieval period to the end of the eighteenth century.

The conference will take place in a hybrid format, so both in person as well as online.

Academic staff, please also encourage suitable PhD candidates across all disciplines to submit a proposal.
