About this Event

Please join us for a one day conference that brings together researchers at various career stages from around the UK to share their research and exchange ideas about the history of the United States in the twentieth century. Our programme features a broad range of papers exploring how the regulation of race, gender and sexual norms have intersected with movements for rights and justice from the early twentieth century to the present day.

The conference also includes a developmental roundtable on publishing that will offer practical advice that we hope will benefit our postgraduate and early career community, whether you are planning to submit your first journal article or book monograph proposal.

Professor Douglas Charles from Penn State University will close the day with a keynote address on 'Researching Hoover's War on Gays: Uncovering Hidden History.'

Ticket prices include lunch and tea and coffee refreshments provided throughout the day.

A version of the conference programme is available to view from our website: https://hotcus.org.uk/2019-postgraduate-conference/conference-programme/

Attendees are also invited to join us the evening before the conference, on Thursday 17 October, for our second work in progress meeting at Pembroke College, Oxford. Liam O'Brien (University College Cork) will be presenting a paper on ‘Winning Back the Peace: The George H.W. Bush Administration, Operation Southern Watch, and a New “Game Plan” for Iraq, August 1992’ and Dr Megan Hunt (University of Edinburgh) will be presenting a paper on “He was shot because America will not give up on racism': Martin Luther King, Jr. and the African American Civil Rights Movement in British Schools.’

Please let us know if you are interested in attending the meeting in order to receive the pre-circulated papers beforehand by emailing: hotcuspostgrads@gmail.com.
