Welcome and save the date!

Mark your calendars!  Welcome to The Practical and Impractical Past, the 12th McGill-Queen’s Graduate Conference in History, to be held at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario on March 6-7, 2015.

We are pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Fredrik Logevall of Cornell University, winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for History for Embers of War: The Fall of an Empire and the Making of America’s Vietnam.  Dr. Logevall’s keynote address will be entitled “The Uses of History: Political Leaders and the Past.”

The tradition of lunchtime workshops at the McGill-Queen’s conference continues, and in keeping with the theme of the past and its uses, this year’s workshop will focus on doing and understanding digital humanities and digital history.

Stay tuned for more details, including our call for papers!
