The Midlands Frontier Regional Studies Seminar (MFRSS) seeks papers examining the history and interpretation of the Tennessee and Cumberland River Valleys and related areas between 1600 and 1850. Now entering our third year, the MFRSS is multidisciplinary and welcomes contributions from anthropologists, geographers, academic and public historians, and other humanists and social scientists as well as independent scholars. The MFRSS hopes to give researchers studying the regionís early history the opportunity to present and discuss their work in an informal setting. Papers will be distributed electronically to participants in advance of our meetings to encourage comment and exchange.
The seminar meets one Wednesday afternoon a month during the academic year in the downtown Nashville Public Libraryís Nashville Room conference area. For more information, including schedules and directions, consult the MFRSS website at the web address provided below.
