Underhill Graduate Student Colloquium

The Underhill 2022 Colloquium, (Re)thinking History, is meant to forefront work going beyond the traditional bounds of academia including the sources being studied, the way we work, how we approach archives, how we share our work, the themes we consider, and the communities involved. Academic history needs to adapt to the times, and we would like this conference to do so as well.

#Underhill2022 will feature two exciting keynotes from Cheryl Foggo (John Ware Reclaimed) and Krista McCraken & Skylee-Storm Hogan-Stacey (Decolonial Archival Futures: Reflections and Practice), graphic recording from Sam Hester, three panels from graduate students and Carleton professors, and nineteen presentations of graduate student work.

Join us (virtually) for the Underhill 2022 on Fri Mar 18th from 9:00am-6:00pm

For over twenty years, graduate students in the Carleton’s Department of History have organized an annual colloquium in which master’s and doctoral students from all disciplines are invited to present on any history-related topic. The primary objective of the Underhill is to facilitate the original research of graduate students by providing a public forum for the presentation of their work. In addition, the Colloquium is designed to promote dialogue between those in different disciplines and to encourage interaction between faculty and graduate students. The Underhill is made possible each year by the generous annual contribution of the Frank H. Underhill fund.

For the Underhill 2022 we would also like to thank our keynote co-sponsors the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies, Migration and Diaspora Studies, and Film Studies at Carleton University.

Join us!




We wish to acknowledge that this Colloquium (and Carleton itself) takes place on the traditional and unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabek/ Omàmiwininiwag. While the conference is virtual, their presence here since time immemorial must be acknowledged.
