As always, we strongly urge professionals in the field to volunteer to serve as chairs and/or discussants. Much of the benefit of the conference depends on active participation and informed commentary by those taking part.
Graduate students are strongly encouraged to participate. Two juried awards of $200 for first prize and $175 for second prize are made annually for the best graduate papers presented at the NESEEES conference, judged according to the following criteria:
clarity of main research question outlining the scholar’s approach to the problem; importance of the research to the profession; amount of support for the argument use of primary sources adequate and interesting content readiness for publication, correct use of English, and readability/style.
Following the conference, graduate students may submit their revised papers to the competition for review. Visual materials accompanying the conference presentation should be submitted along with the written text for evaluation. The first-prize paper will be entered in the national ASEEES competition.
