Deadline for Submission: June 1, 2002
This seminar meets on the last Thursday of each month, from September through May, 3:30-5:30 pm at the Newberry Library.
Papers are distributed in advance to allow full time for discussion. Scholars are welcome to present "works in progress" and advisors are encouraged to call the seminar to the attention of advanced graduate students. Priority is give to scholars who need a venue for the presentation of their scholarship and to scholars who are at a stage in their work when they can best profit from discussion.
Scholars interested in presenting a paper should send a one-page proposal, a brief c.v., and a statement on the relationship of the proposed paper to their other work.
