CFP: Urban History Dissertation Seminar at the Newbery

Urban History Dissertation Seminar

Sponsors: The Karla Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture at the University of Chicago.

2017-2018 Academic Year 

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Submission Deadline: August 15, 2017

The Urban History Dissertation Seminar is a workshop held at the Newberry Library on select Saturdays for graduate students writing on urban history topics. The seminar provides a comfortable, low-pressure setting for presentation to peers of works-in-progress from dissertations (most often chapter drafts). Graduate students from all universities are welcome. Our goal is to provide a supportive space to offer ideas and comments that help our participants complete dissertations that touch on any topic of interest in our field. Our partic- ipants typically submit dissertation or book chapters, as well as academic articles, at varying stages of completion–working drafts are wholeheartedly welcome!

Members should be committed to attending as many of the meetings as possible. To maximize time for discussion, papers are circulated electronically in advance. The group meets on six select Saturdays during the academic year, 2:00pm–4:00pm, at the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois. Please note that submissions must be from PhD students in candidacy, though we welcome all doctoral students to attend our workshop.

Submissions will be reviewed and accepted, and dates assigned, on a first-come, first-served basis. After August 15, submissions will be considered on a space-available basis. Proposals should include an abstract, preferred presentation date, and a dissertation outline explaining how the paper fits into the larger project.

Please submit proposal materials by visiting newberry.org/newberry-urban-history-dissertation-group and using our webform.
