Call for Proposals – WHEATS 2010: Workshop for the History of Environment, Agriculture, Technology & Science

October 8-10, 2010

University of Wisconsin-Madison, Center for Culture, History, and Environment (CHE), Madison, Wisconsin, USA

The Center for Culture, History, and Environment (CHE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is pleased to be hosting WHEATS in

Fall 2010. Now in its seventh 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 members of the broader CHE community.

Due to logistical constraints, papers must be in English. UW-Madison will provide housing, food, and some funding to help defray

travel costs. Potential participants should submit a one-page abstract (200 words) and short curriculum vitae by April 15, 2010.  All

submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail.  Applicants should note their year of graduate study or Ph.D. completion date. Accepted papers will be due August 31, 2010.
