After being on hiatus for a couple of years, the history graduate students of the University of Maine and the University of New Brunswick are pleased to announce the return of the UMaine-UNB International History Graduate Student Conference on March 26-27, 2022. In its 21st year, the conference will be held virtually via Zoom.

Annual UMaine-UNB International Graduate Student Conference

The UMaine-UNB History Graduate Student Conference is held annually during the Fall semester. Jointly hosted by graduate students at both universities since 1998, the conference site alternates every other year between the two campuses in Orono, Maine, and Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. The conference offers a wonderful opportunity for History graduate students from the University of Maine, the University of New Brunswick, as well as universities across the U.S. and Canada, to present their work in a relaxed and amiable setting among friends, fellow graduate students and faculty from the host institution. The conference allows graduate students to gain experience presenting a paper at a conference, and hear feedback about their research. In past years, the UMaine-UNB Conference has hosted participants from many universities in North America including Miami University, the University of Vermont, the University of Massachusetts, the University of Memphis, the University of Saskatchewan, McGill University, Universite de Moncton, Universite Laval, and the University of Alberta, among others.
