Separateness and Kinship Transatlantic Exchanges between Britain and New England 1600-1900
Seminar invitation to Early Career Researchers to submit proposals to be included in a one day seminar, 'As Others See Us' on Saturday, 12 December 2009 at University of Exeter
Deadline : Thursday, 15 October 2009.
As part of an AHRC funded research network that includes participants from the University of Plymouth (which is leading the network), the University of Exeter, Amherst College, and Simmons College in Boston MA, we would like invite a small number of early career researchers from literary studies, architecture and material culture, and art history to submit abstracts.
The purpose of the seminar is to explore ways in which we might re-evaluate the cultural interaction between Britain and New England 1600-1900 in a collection of essays.
The outcome will be a book proposal to put to Ashgate, who have expressed interest in this project. There will also be time set aside on the day to consider the international conference planned for Plymouth in July 2010, and to discuss the setting up of a UK Centre for New England studies. Contributors from the US and the UK will outline some of research resources available.
We invite new researchers to submit to Vivien Minton, Project Officer (email@example.com) the following as a Microsoft word attachment:
1.A three hundred word abstract of an essay relevant to the focus of this research network
2.A one page CV, including publications.
Please head your proposal 'Seminar'.
Successful applicants will have their travelling expenses paid. In the event of there being more excellent proposals than we have space to include, we shall invite individuals to submit their proposals in response to the call for papers for the international Transatlantic Exchanges conference which we are arranging for July 2010 and for which an announcement will be made separately.
