The Newberry Library Seminar in Rural History
Co-sponsored by the University of Chicago and Trinity Christian College
CALL FOR PAPERS
for the 2007–08 academic year
Deadline for Submission: 15 June 2007
This seminar provides a forum for works-in-progress that explore rural history, rural economy, and the rural experience, both in the distant and recent past. Previous presenters have examined rural families,ethnic identities, economic relations, medicine, and representations of country people in film and literature. We welcome scholars interested in all dimensions of rural life, broadly construed.
The seminar is open to graduate students, faculty members, and independent scholars. To maximize 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. The seminar meets on selected Saturdays during the academic year, 11:00 AM–3:00 PM, at the Newberry Library in Chicago. To propose a paper, please send a one-page proposal, a statement explaining the relationship of the paper to your other work, and a brief c.v. to Diane Dillon, Assistant Director, Dr. William M. Scholl Center for Family and Community History, The Newberry Library. Please send all materials as electronic attachments via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in proposing a paper and have questions, please contact seminar coordinator John Fry (Trinity Christian College, John.Fry@trnty.edu; (708) 239-4863.)
The Newberry Library is unable to provide funds for travel or lodging, but can provide assistance in locating discounted accommodations.
