The Graduate Student Lunch is an annual Association event made possible by a bequest from John and LaWanda Cox. Each year, the SHA's Graduate Student Council works to build a panel around a luncheon topic of shared interest. This year’s Graduate Student Luncheon, “Publishing in the 21st Century,” will seat graduate students with publishers, bloggers, podcasters, and digital historians for intense small-group discussions of academic publishing, virtual networking, social media utilization, and more. To ensure that our groups cohere and because space is limited, SHA’s graduate student council is asking that interested graduate students preregister for the luncheon by sending a short (150-200 word) abstract and CV to by October 15. Participants must be members of the Southern Historical Association. Availability is limited. Professors, editors, and other professionals in publishing who are interested in providing advice to graduate students on any of these topics are also invited to sign up for the luncheon.
