Call: Emerging Scholars Symposium organising committee


COHDS is looking for three affiliated graduate students to form the organising committee for the 2018 Emerging Scholars Symposium on Oral, Digital, and Public History.

The symposium, which brings our affiliates together to talk about new and ongoing research, is the highlight of our year. It will take place in late March. Panels and logistics will be planned from January to March.

This is a great opportunity for those interested in gaining event-planning experience, or who would like to learn about the inner-workings of an academic conference. The organising committee will:

  • Receive and answer proposals
  • Select papers and form thematic panels
  • Invite and coordinate panel chairs
  • Invite a keynote speaker
  • Plan the day's schedule
  • Promote the event through social media, posters, and the COHDS newsletter
  • Plan catering
  • Manage technical needs and logistics
  • Coordinate with COHDS staff and presenters

If you are interested in contributing to our 5th edition's success, please get in touch with Marie-Anne Gagnon at ohconcordia@gmail.com.
