Finding Conferences – H-Net is Key!

May 8, 2013

At this point in our careers most grad students have something worth sharing with the larger Imageacademy.  You have a seminar paper that “ain’t so bad” and you’re ready to share it with the world.  Okay, well not THE WORLD, yet… but you want to share it with someone other than your advisor (who hates it) and your mother (who loves it).  Where, pray tell, can you find such a place?

Sometimes departments post fliers for conferences in the area, but the best way to find Calls for Papers (CFPs) is on H-Net, the list serv software from Michigan State that will fill your inbox with delightful things nearly every day.  If you haven’t yet checked out H-Net, go there now.

You can subscribe to H-lists (the H stands for Humanities, by the way) on a variety of subjects.  There are announcements for conferences, book projects, and even book reviews.  It’s a great opportunity to network with other professionals writing in a given subject within the historical profession.

Go, subscribe, and get connected!

Call for Submissions: The Middle Ground

February 18, 2011

[Cut from H-Grad, may be an opportunity for some CFH grad members.]

The Middle Ground: An Online Journal for World Historians

ISSN: 2155-1103

The Middle Ground is a peer-reviewed academic journal for everyone
with an interest in world history. All students of world history, no
matter where we teach, research and study, are warmly invited to
contribute. The middle ground is the common space shared between
teachers and students, between research and teaching, among all levels
and types of places of learning, among different areas of
specialization and methodological approaches. We embrace and seek to
nurture the common ground shared by all who are committed to the
studying and teaching of world history. In particular, we seek to
serve as the shared, common space between world history in the K-12
institutions and world history in the colleges and universities.

We invite submissions of articles and essays as well as nonfiction,
fiction, film, and television reviews. We also publish reviews of
textbooks and reflective presentations of teaching materials. Please
contact the chief editor if you plan to submit a review of books or
other artifacts already in your possession. We call upon all
contributors, whether of an essay, article, or review, to consciously
address a broader audience beyond that of a traditional academic
journal, and to shape the work so that it may be used in a classroom
on as many levels as possible. We would like to particularly encourage
contributions on teaching from teachers, independent scholars and
students. Submissions for The Middle Ground will be accepted on a
continual basis. Please see the journal’s website for the submission

All enquiries should be directed to the chief editor, Professor
Hong-Ming Liang, at MiddleGroundJournal@Gmail.Com. Or, Prof. Liang,
