The Newberry Seminar on Technology, Politics, and Culture
co-sponsored by the University of Illinois at Chicago, Roosevelt University, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and Northwestern University
CALL FOR PAPERS
For the 2002-2003 academic year
This seminar provides a forum for "works-in-progress" that explore the relationship between technology, politics, and culture, broadly defined. It takes place on Fridays from 3:30-5:30 pm at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
It is open to graduate students, faculty members, independent scholars, and professionals in related fields, such as engineering and urban planning. To maximize the time for discussion, papers are circulated electronically in advance. Priority is given to individuals who are at a stage of their research at which they can best profit from discussion, and to individuals who need a venue to present their work. Papers dealing with pre-1900 and non-U.S. topics are particularly welcome.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please send a one-page proposal along with a brief c.v. to the address below.
We hope to have established the schedule for 2002-2003 by 31 August 31, 2002 but may have open slots for proposals that are submitted after that date.
The Newberry Library is unable to provide funds for travel or lodging, but can provide assistance in locating accommodations.
If you would like to be placed on the mailing list to receive announcements for upcoming presentations, or if you would like further information about Newberry Library seminars, phone Rebekah Holmes at the Dr. William M. Scholl Center for Family and Community History at the Newberry Library at (312) 255-3524, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
