How do I negotiate salary for a previous position I quit?

I was working at a job straight out of college and ended up being naïve and not negotiating my salary properly. It burnt me because the company had a limit on raise percentages. Eventually I decided to move on to my own wanderlust endeavors. Now i'm coming back from being away. I've got a master's in an unrelated field but my field isn't too hot and I don't have experience or connections in any related fields. I rather go back with a job in hand than wait around living with my parents. Will my previous salary hinder me? How can I spin my new experiences for this job? One detail is that the position has changed since I quit and added additional responsibilities due to consolidation.
Is it possible to even negotiate as they know my history? I've got a good relationship and left on good terms and they know I handled my work properly.
Here's my throwaway for any questions. M8Rfirstname.lastname@example.org
