Co-sponsored by the History Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Northern Illinois University, and the Labor and Working Class History Association
CALL FOR PAPERS for the 2005-06 academic year
Deadline for Submission: 1 June 2005
This seminar provides a forum for “works-in-progress” that explore the history of working class people, communities, and culture; unions and popular political movements; and other related topics. We are particularly interested in works that deal with gender, sexuality, race, migration, and the social history of work. Our focus has been on U.S. history, however, we welcome papers on North America generally, and on transnational aspects of labor history.
The seminar takes place on one Friday every month, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at the Newberry Library in Chicago. It is open to graduate students, independent scholars, and faculty. 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.
To apply, please send a one-page proposal, a brief c.v., and a statement on the relationship of the proposed paper to your other work. Send materials to Aaron Shapiro, Dr. William M. Scholl Center for Family and Community History, The Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton Street, Chicago, IL, 60610; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; phone (312) 255-3681; fax (312) 255-3696.
