Workshop for the History of the Environment, Agriculture, Technology, & Science
The University of Kansas Department of History is pleased to be hosting WHEATS in Spring 2014. Now in its tenth year, the Workshop for the History of Environment, Agriculture, Technology, and Science (WHEATS) brings together graduate students studying the history of the environment, agriculture, science, or technology. WHEATS is open to submissions from any discipline with interests in these fields. Papers — generally 25-30 pages — are circulated in advance to all participants, and at the workshop papers receive feedback from participants and senior scholars through a roundtable discussion. This format is well suited for works in progress, and the workshop will have sessions on professional development as well as opportunities to meet and engage other scholars in the KU community.
Due to logistical constraints, papers must be in English.
KU plans to provide housing, food, and some funding to help defray travel costs. Potential participants should submit a one-page abstract (200 words) and a short curriculum vitae by Nov. 15, 2013. Submit proposals at https://history.drupal.ku.edu/call-proposals. All submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail. Acceptance will be confirmed by Dec. 1, 2013.
