Graduate History Association 17th Annual Conference

Join the UMass Amherst Graduate History Association (GHA) for their 17th Annual Conference: "Stories of (In)Equality: Justice and Power Across Space and Time." This year’s conference will bring together over two dozen graduate student speakers to present on papers and media projects which consider the multifaceted forces that have shaped historical struggles over time and their relevance to today’s conversations of race, gender, sexuality, equity and struggles for freedom.

Conference will begin on Friday April 9 with keynote speaker Dr. Genevieve Carpio, Assistant Professor in the César E. Chávez Department of Chicana/o Studies at the University of California Los Angeles. Dr. Carpio’s keynote address is titled “An Interdisciplinary Atlas to Journeys in Space and Time.” 

Panel presentations will be held throughout the day on Saturday April 10, moderated by university faculty from the Departments of History, Art & Architecture, Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies, and Afro-American Studies.
