We invite graduate and advanced undergraduate students from across
the social sciences and the humanities to submit proposals for papers
or panels that adopt an interdisciplinary or transnational approach,
but we are also seeking papers or panels that approach historical
topics in more traditional ways. All submissions must be based on
original research. In keeping with the theme of the conference,
individual papers will be organized into individually chaired panels
that cross spatial, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries. The IGHSC
will present prizes for the best papers in several categories.

Preference will be given to papers and panels received during the
early submission period which ends January 9, 2021. The final
