For its 2008-09 research seminar series, the Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society at the Hagley Museum and Library invites paper proposals from advanced scholars in history, sociology, or anthropology of work, technology and/or enterprise. We welcome applicants developing or researching questions, issues or topics that lie beyond dissertation revision and publication, i.e. “second book” projects or later. Papers should be original work in progress essays and at the time of the seminar not already accepted for publication. All papers will be pre-circulated, and each session will open with one or more extended comments on the text.
Hagley will cover travel and local expenses, and will also provide an honorarium to seminar presenters. Kindly send a vita and 1-2 page statement regarding the work in progress and your planned paper to: Dr. Roger Horowitz, Hagley Museum and Library, PO Box 3630, Wilmington DE 19807, or email same to rhorowitz@Hagley.org. Deadline for submissions is May 1, 2008.
