The Newberry Library Seminar in American Indian Studies

The Newberry Library in Chicago is pleased to announce a call for papers for their Seminar in American Indian studies. The seminar is open to graduate students, faculty members, and independent scholars. Deadline submission: September 30, 2009

The Newberry Library Seminar in American Indian Studies
This seminar provides a forum for works-in-progress that explore topics in American
Indian Studies. They encourage the submission of proposals for seminar papers that
examine a wide variety of subjects relating to American Indian and Indigenous history
and culture broadly conceived. They welcome proposals from scholars working in a wide
range of academic fields, and are particularly interested in interdisciplinary approaches.
The seminar is open to graduate students, faculty members and independent scholars.
Graduate students and junior faculty in the early-writing stages who wish to present
work are especially encouraged to apply. 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. The seminar meets several
times during the academic year, usually on a Thursday afternoon from 3pm to 5pm, at
the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois.
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 Jade Cabagnot, Program
Assistant, D'Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian History, The Newberry Library.
Please send all materials as electronic attachments via email to:
If you are interested in proposing a paper and have questions, please contact seminar
coordinator and Director of the McNickle Center, Dr. Scott Manning Stevens
