Submissions for the 15th annual McGill-Queen’s Graduate Conference in History, taking place in Montreal on March 1-3, 2018, are due on Friday, December 8, 2017. Abstracts of no more than 400 words and a brief academic biography (in Word or PDF format) should be sent to

The theme of this year’s conference, “Violence and the Mind,” will provide a platform for graduate students to explore violence historically by foregrounding the interior lives of historical subjects. We welcome emerging scholars from across the disciplines to present research that questions how violence is produced, elaborated, interpreted and experienced by the mind. For more on this year’s theme, please refer to the attached PDF. To learn more about the McGill-Queen’s Graduate Conference in History, please visit

This year’s keynote speaker is Dagmar Herzog, Distinguished Professor of History and Daniel Rose Faculty Scholar at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Her book, Cold War Freud: Psychoanalysis in an Age of Catastrophes, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2016.
