annual Fort Garry Lectures Conference. The Fort Garry Lectures Conference is a conference where students can showcase their research in a collegial environment and forge interdisciplinary connections with students and faculty from across the Universities and the country.

The Fort Garry Lectures will take place beginning

Thursday, May 5th, and concluding on Saturday 7 May, 2016. This Graduate Student Conference aims to promote scholarly exchange on critical questions increasingly central to research across the Arts and Humanities by bringing together student researchers from both the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg, and across Canada. The conference will encourage in-depth thinking across disciplinary boundaries and methodological approaches.

We, the History Graduate Student Association, would appreciate if you pass around our Call for Papers Poster. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email us at

The conference will take place May 5th to the 7th. On the 5th there will be a round table discussion, on the 6th the presentations will be at the University of Manitoba Fort Garry campus and the 7th presentations will be at University of Winnipeg. The conference includes refreshment breaks in the morning and afternoon, lunches and a dinner on the 6th, keynote speakers, presentations on a wide variety of historical topics by all levels of students. The organizing board would like to remind students that all levels from undergraduates to doctoral candidates are welcome to submit a paper for consideration. There is no boundary on the topic or subject, as long as it is historical in some sense.

You may submit panels of no more than three fifteen-minute papers, or single papers. Submissions can be sent to, or dropped off at the history office, 403 Fletcher Argue.
