Phi Alpha Theta

The Department of History and Geography at Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia will host the 2023 Phi Alpha Theta State Regional Conference on 14-15 April, 2023. This will be the first regional conference that a Phi Alpha Theta Chapter has held in Georgia in several years and will take place on the RiverPark campus of Columbus State in historic Uptown Columbus.

The conference is intended to provide opportunities for history students and faculty to connect (and reconnect) with one another while highlighting outstanding student work conducted in our region. There will be a dinner and social mixer for participants on the evening of Friday, 14 April, with student presentations on Saturday.

We seek the submission of undergraduate papers on topics related to local, American, European, and world histories covering any period of time. Our department also includes a number of specialists of war and society, and so papers focused on aspects of US and world military histories are especially welcome. Cash prizes and book vouchers will also be awarded for the most outstanding presentations at the conference, including special prizes for the best paper on topics related to local Georgia/Alabama and a military history topic.

We welcome submissions and attendance from both Phi Alpha Theta members as well as students who are not yet members of the society. Additionally, we welcome contributions from students and faculty advisors from outside of Georgia should they wish to join us in Columbus, and we enthusiastically invite community members with a passion for history to attend the diverse and interesting talks on Saturday, 15 April.
