2015 IGHSC - Locating History: The Local, the National, the Transnational

What happens when scholars remove the lines that separate states, nations, generations, the sexes, and other divisions in society? The International Graduate Historical Studies Conference (IGHSC) at Central Michigan University discussed this very topic on March 27-28, 2015. Increasingly, scholars in a variety of fields are ignoring the societal boundaries and geographical borders that have long separated those engaged in historical inquiry. The IGHSC offered students and faculty in the humanities and the social sciences the opportunity to explore the benefits, the challenges, and the limitations of crossing borders and moving beyond boundaries.
