Invitation to Join the UBC Interdisciplinary Histories Research Cluster
The UBC Interdisciplinary Histories Research Cluster brings together scholars from diverse disciplines to work collaboratively on projects that explore our shared and contested pasts, and their implications for the present.
In the past year, Cluster members have organized and participated in a diverse range of events and projects that interrogate how we (re)claim, dispute, represent, document marginalized and traumatic histories and how we can reconcile the past and the present. Some highlights of last year’s events include the launch of a Vancouver Archive of the Umbrella Movement (in Hong Kong), a workshop on how to recover the submerged histories of Indigenous objects placed in indigenous collections, and film screenings-cum-discussions of films about political violence in India from 1984 to the present.
The Cluster invites graduate students who are interested in contested, marginalized, traumatic, or forgotten histories, or in ways of representing, documenting, and interrogating the past to join the cluster. The Cluster is particularly keen to support graduate students in initiating or driving activities that contribute to the Cluster’s focuses and interests.
Benefits of Joining the Cluster:
- Invitations to the Cluster’s events and activities, which feature speakers and scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds
- Opportunities to network and forge connections or collaborations with UBC faculty and graduate students from different departments and centres in UBC
- Opportunities to propose cluster activities and keynote speakers for Cluster support (Deadline for Call for Proposals: 3 August 2020!)
