The Newberry Urban History Dissertation Seminar is seeking submissions for the 2006-2007 academic year. The seminar will be held at the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois on the first Saturday of each month from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., starting in October. The seminar is intended for advanced doctoral candidates to submit writing related to their dissertation and receive feedback from their peers. Each month, seminar participants review a colleague’s submission, which is distributed to the group two weeks in advance. In turn, seminar participants provide comments and suggestions on each submission. The purpose of the seminar is to provide a comfortable, low¬-pressure setting for discussion of works-in-progress.
Please note that submissions will be reviewed and accepted on a first come, first served basis, and dates for presentation are assigned in the same way. Presentation proposals should include a chapter abstract and a dissertation outline, which briefly describes how the chapter fits into the larger project. Please indicate which date(s) you prefer.
The Newberry seminar is an excellent opportunity to meet other graduate students undertaking similar research. We encourage participation from both presenters and discussants and request regular attendance to adequately provide feedback for each presenter’s research.
The deadline for submissions is September 15. Proposals should be mailed to the seminar coordinators: Steve Servais at firstname.lastname@example.org and Tamsen Anderson at email@example.com, respectively.
