The Furniture History Society is organising a Research Seminar, hosted by the Metropolitan Museum on Monday 3 February 2014, to present current research on topics of British and European furniture history, construction, design, conservation and historical interiors. Speakers will be US based PhD/Post Doc. students, junior museum/heritage curators and other researchers at an early stage of their career development. Each paper will last 20 minutes.
Interested speakers are requested to send an abstract of c. 300 words outlining their proposed topic, research methodologies and sources, with a current curriculum vitae and details of one referee to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 October 2013. A panel from the Society's Grants Committee and the European Dept of Decorative Arts, the Metropolitan Museum will consider submissions and confirm the programme by beginning November 2013. Some assistance with speakers travel expenses may be available - any request for this should be included with the applicant's abstract.
