The Newberry Library Seminar in Rural History
Co-sponsored by the University of Chicago and Trinity Christian College
CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE 2006-07 ACADEMIC YEAR
Deadline for Submission: 1 June 2006
This seminar provides a forum for "works-in-progress." We distribute papers in advance to those who plan to attend, allowing full time for discussion during seminar meetings. In selecting presenters, we give priority to scholars and advanced graduate students who are at a stage in their work when they can profit best from discussion and to individuals who need a venue to present their work. The seminar meets on selected Satrudays during the academic year from 11:00-3:00pm at the Newberry Library in Chicago. It is open to graduate students, faculty members, independent scholars, and professionals in related fields. To maximize the time for discussion, papers are circulated electronically in advance.
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, Assistant Director, Dr. William M. Scholl Center for Family & Community History, The Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton Street, Chicago, IL, 60610; e-mail email@example.com; phone 312.255.3681; fax 312.255.3696.
If you are interested in presenting a paper and have questions, please contact Professor John Fry at John.Fry@trnty.edu; phone 708.239.4863.
The Newberry Library is unable to provide funds for travel or lodging, but can assist in locating discounted accommodations.
