This seminar provides a forum for works-in-progress that explore topics in Latino and Borderlands history. We encourage the submission of proposals for seminar papers or whole panels that examine the interplay of Latino people, communities, and culture in the United States; transnational and comparative “borderlands” studies; civil rights and social movements; and other related topics. Our focus has been on U.S.-Mexico borderlands history; however, we welcome papers on North American or global “borderlands” generally. We welcome proposals from scholars working in a broad range of academic fields, and are particularly interested in interdisciplinary approaches.The seminar is open to graduate students, faculty members and independent scholars. Graduate students and junior faculty in the early-writing stages who wish to present work are especially encouraged to apply. 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. The seminar meets on selected Saturdays during the academic year, 11:00 AM-3:00 PM, at the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois.
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 Heather Radke, Program Assistant, Dr. William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture, 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 coordinators Geraldo Cadava (Northwestern University, email@example.com) and John Alba Cutler (Northwestern University, firstname.lastname@example.org). The Newberry Library is unable to provide funds for travel or lodging, but can assist in locating discounted accommodations.
