Co-sponsored by the History Departments of DePaul University, Loyola University, Northern Illinois University, Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Karla Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture at the University of Chicago
CALL FOR PAPERS for the 2010-11 academic year
Deadline for Submission: 25 April 2010
The Early American History and Culture Seminar provides a forum for works-in-progress that explore any aspect of early American life, politics, and culture, broadly conceived. We welcome papers on early North American or Caribbean history, from roughly 1500 to 1830, as well as papers treating the Americas from comparative, Atlantic, and global perspectives.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. Special consideration will be given to proposals from graduate students at a stage of their dissertation where they could most benefit from a seminar presentation. The seminar meets on selected Wednesdays during the academic year, 5:30–7:00 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 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 one of the seminar coordinators, Betsy Erkkila (Northwestern University, email@example.com) and John Donoghue (Loyola University Chicago, firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Newberry Library is unable to provide funds for travel or lodging, but can assist in locating discounted accommodations.
