The Newberry Library Seminar on Technology, Politics, and Culture
Co-sponsored by the University of Illinois at Chicago, Roosevelt University, and Northwestern University's School of Communications
CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE 2006-07 ACADEMIC YEAR
Deadline for Submission: 1 June 2006
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 3:30-5:00pm at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
The seminar 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. We hope to have the schedule esablished for 2006-07 by 1 July 2006, but may have open slots for proposals that are submitted after that date.
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 seminar coordinator Jim Schwoch (Northwestern University) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847.491.7361.
