The Newberry Library American History Dissertation Seminar
Started in 1994 as an urban history dissertation group, this forum has expanded to include graduate students who are researching and writing dissertations in American social and cultural history. Graduate students are invited to present work on their dissertation and to participate in discussion on the writing of others. The group meets approximately four times each semester to read and discuss chapters, articles, and proposals. The meeting date is usually the last Wednesday of the month (September-May) from 3:30p.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Newberry Library. The seminar format assumes that all participants have read the essay in advance, and that all who request the paper will attend the seminar.
The Group is open to graduate students only (no faculty). Traditionally, the group has been comprised of graduate students in the Chicago area, but welcomes any graduate student who is in the area, or is willing to make the trip.
We are now accepting proposals for the 2000-01 academic year. In the past, seminars have discussed chapter drafts, proposals, articles for submission to journals, and conference papers. Please send a short description of your project (200 words max.) and a c.v. to Adam Stewart at the address below.
The October 25, 2000 meeting is filled, and we are looking for presentations for November and beyond. Please submit proposals by October 25, 2000.
If you are interested in joining the History Dissertation Group, please contact Tim Neary (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Adam Stewart.
