We have a very interesting lineup of papers planned, as well as a workshop on the implications of contemporary gender theory for our work, a trip to the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library, and a dinner cruise on lovely Lake Minnetonka. You'll find the draft program on the website: http://imsss.net/

    Call for Papers
    Confronting Crisis: Writing History in Uncertain Times

    History is punctuated by periods of crisis that change the fundamental structures of a society. Moments of historical change have wide-reaching consequences that can be anticipated or may be only visible in hindsight. Crises, too, can range from a single event to multi-year, multi-level phenomena. In an age where we are confronting our own multiple crises, it is more important than ever to consider how we as historians deal with crises.

    This conference explores the concept of crisis in history and in historical practice. How do historians write history during moments of turmoil and upheaval? What is the aftermath of crises? How can crises be properly represented in history?

    This three-day symposium is the inaugural Convergences: York-University of Toronto Graduate History Conference. Held from 28-30 April 2021, this conference will be virtual due to COVID-19. Sessions will be distributed over three days to accommodate speaker schedules, time zones, and mitigate Zoom fatigue.

    We welcome submissions that address the concept of crisis, both as a methodology for writing history and in historical context. Possible subjects can include, but are not limited to:
    • Confronting crises of race, religion, and otherness
    • Anti-Black racism as a social crisis
    • Genocide and population collapse
    • Natural disasters and their aftermath
    • The politics of resource access in crises
    • Disease and disease management in history
    • Manufactured Crisis (economic, technological, political)
    • War and its effects in society
    • Crises in social structures (race, gender, sexuality)
    • Protesting, police, and the carceral system
    • Critiques of the use of crisis in periodization
    • Writing history in the time of COVID and BLM
    We invite graduate students (MA and PhD) in history and related disciplines to submit proposals that address the issue of crisis, broadly construed, in history. Presentations should be 20 minutes in length, and will be followed by a Q&A period. For individual papers or completed panels, please complete the Google Form (https://forms.gle/6J8UxLciUxKEWwBw6) with your title, abstract (250 words), and brief bio by 1 February 2021. Completed panels will also be accepted. Please indicate in the Google form if you are submitting as part of a completed panel.

    Accepted submissions will be notified by email by 15 March 2021.

    If you have any questions, please direct emails to Angela Zhang at CYUThistory@gmail.com. For more information, visit us at cyuthistory.wordpress.com and @CYUT21 on Twitter.

    Appel à contributions
    Confrontant les crises : L’écriture de’histoire pendant des temps d’incertitudes

    L’histoire est marquée par des périodes de crise qui changent les structures fondamentales de la société. Les moments phares de l’histoire ont des conséquences qui peuvent être anticipées ou leurs effets ne sont pas toujours évidents qu’en rétrospective. Les crises peuvent aussi varier d’un seul événement à celles qui croisent des années et qui agissent comme des phénomènes de la multiplicité. Pendant ce temps, où nous confrontons nos propres crises, il est plus important que jamais à considérer comment les historiens gèrent des crises.

    Ce colloque examine le concept de crise dans l’histoire et les pratiques historiques. Comment est-ce que les historiens écrivent pendant des moments de douleur et de bouleversement ? Quel est le contrecoup des crises ? Est-il possible de vraiment représenter les crises dans l’histoire ?

    Ce symposium est l’inaugurale Convergences : York-University of Toronto Graduate History Conference. Étant donné la situation présente du COVID-19, le colloque virtuel aura lieu du 28 au 30 avril 2021. Les séances seraient distribuées sur trois jours afin d’accueillir l’horaire des
    conférencières, de multiples fuseaux horaires et pour éviter la fatigue de Zoom.

    Nous accueillons ouvertement des propositions qui s’adressent le concept de crise soit comme une méthodologie de l’écriture de l’histoire ou comme contexte historique. Les sujets possibles incluent, mais ne sont pas limités, à :
    • Confronter des crises de race, de religion et d’altérité
    • Le racisme Anti-Black comme crise sociale
    • Le génocide et l’effondrement de la population
    • Les catastrophes naturelles et leurs conséquences
    • Les politiques de l’accès aux ressources pendant les crises
    • Les maladies et leur gestion historique
    • Les crises manufacturées (économique, technologique et politique)
    • La guerre et ces effets sur la société
    • Les crises sociales de race, de genre ou du sexe
    • Les manifestations, la police, et le système carcéral
    • Critiques de l’utilisation du concept de la crise dans la périodisation
    • L’écriture de l’histoire pendant la période de COVID et BLM
    Nous invitons tous les étudiants aux cycles supérieurs en histoire, ou associés à la discipline, à soumettre des propositions portant sur le thème de crise, qui est interprété d’une manière large en histoire. Les présentations devraient être 20 minutes et seront suivies par une période de questions. Les propositions individuelles doivent être soumises par le biais du Google Form
    (https://forms.gle/6J8UxLciUxKEWwBw6), indiquant votre titre, un résumé de 250 mots et une courte biographie, au plus tard du 1 février 2021. Notre comité accepte aussi des propositions pour des panels complètes. S’il vous plaît, indiquez si vous êtes membre d’un panel complet lorsque vous remplissez le formulaire.

    Nous communiquerons nos décisions, par courriel, le 15 mars 2021.

    Si vous avez des questions, contactez Angela Zhang à CYUThistory@gmail.com. Pour en savoir plus, vous pouvez nous trouver sur le site cyuthistory.wordpress.com et sur Twitter @CYUT21.
