The Chicago Seminar on Sport & Culture
Co-sponsored by Northeastern Illinois University and the Dr. William M. Scholl Center for Family & Community History
CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE 2006-07 ACADEMIC YEAR
Deadline for Submission: 1 June 2006
The seminar is intended to draw together scholars from a variety of fields to share their inquiries in the history, sociology, literature, anthropology, and economics of athletics. Comparative as well as interdisciplinary, the seminar will engage the development of sport within diverse cultural settings - ancient and modern - just as it will explore topics that range beyond the playing fields: the social construction of masculinity, for instance, or the relationship between sport and ethnic identity.
Each seminar will feature a presentation of original research by a scholar in the field as well as cultural commentary on sport. Ideally, our meetings will stimulate wide-ranging discussions, applicable for use in both classroom and broader professional forums. The seminar takes place on on Friday a month during the academic year, from 3:30-5:00pm at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
If you are interested in giving a presentation to the seminar, please send a one-page proposal along with a brief c.v. to Ginger Shulick, Dr. Wm. M.
