The History Graduate Student Association at Stony Brook University will host its third annual interdisciplinary graduate conference on Saturday, March 30, 2019. Graduate students from all fields are invited to submit paper or panel proposals related to the theme of “Movement and Migration.” In past years this conference has attracted participants from across the country. The conference offers graduate students an excellent opportunity to network, engage with new and innovative scholarship from multiple disciplines, and receive feedback on their research projects from fellow students and established scholars.

We are honored to welcome Mae Ngai, Lung Family Professor of Asian American Studies and Professor of History at Columbia University, as our keynote speaker for this year’s conference. Professor Ngai is the author of numerous groundbreaking works exploring questions of immigration, citizenship, and nationalism, including the award-winning Impossible Subjects: Illegal Aliens and the Making of Modern America (2004). She has also written on immigration history and policy for The New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times. Professor Ngai is now writing Nation of Immigrants: A Short History of an Idea and The Chinese Question, a study of Chinese gold miners and racial politics in 19th-century California, Australia, and South Africa.
