Proud of the international dimension it has acquired over the past few years, Artefact renews its invitation to graduate students and young scholars to submit paper proposals for the 18th International Conference of the Graduate Student Association of the History Department of Université Laval. The purpose of the conference is to bring together Master’s, Doctoral students and young scholars working on a variety of topics in order to foster discussion.
