The History Department at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is soliciting nominations and applications for its twelfth annual Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture, to be delivered in October 2013. Each year, the Sherman Committee at UNCW identifies a scholar at the beginning of his or her career and invites him to visit Wilmington for three days of meetings with students, faculty, local media, and members of the community who share his or her research interests. The centerpiece of the visit is a formal lecture to be delivered at the University on a topic decided upon by the Sherman Committee. This year’s topic is “Peacemaking and Reconciliation in Global History.”
The Sherman Scholar will receive an honorarium of $5,000.
We invite you to nominate a junior colleague or recent doctoral student in your program who you feel would make an outstanding Sherman Scholar. Enclosed is a flyer describing more fully the Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture and how to apply. Feel free as well to circulate this call for nominations and the accompanying flyer to your colleagues. Please note that the deadline for applications is March 31, 2013. We greatly appreciate your time and assistance.
