About the Underhill Graduate Student Colloquium


For over two decades, graduate students in the Department of History at Carleton University have organized an annual colloquium in which master’s and doctoral students from all disciplines are invited to present papers on any history-related topic. The primary objective of the colloquium 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. Participating graduate students present their original research in a 7-10 minute talks, hear valuable commentary on their work and gain experience for future conference presentations.
