June 19 - 28, 2009
Organizers of the Oaxaca Experience in Mexican History and Culture invite applications for a summer writers’ workshop to take place in Oaxaca, Mexico from June 19 to June 28, 2009. During the workshop, senior scholars will offer their guidance to writers of dissertations and monographs on Mexican history and culture. Workshop moderators will include Paul Vanderwood of San Diego State University, Liza Bakewell of Brown University, Bill Beezley from the University of Arizona, and Bill French from the University of British Columbia. Writers will collaborate with other participants and will have the opportunity to present their research to the Oaxaca Summer Institute graduate seminar. Oxford University Press and the University of Nebraska Press will be available in the final days of the workshop to discuss writing projects with participants and to answer questions about the publishing process.
Space in the workshop is limited and preference will be given to applicants who have completed the Ph.D. within the last five years.
Cost for the workshop is $1,600, which will cover the expenses associated with workshop moderators, local housing accommodations, and access to local university resources.
