The Newberry Library Seminar on Technology, Politics, And Culture Co-sponsored by the University of Illinois at Chicago, Roosevelt University, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and Northwestern University’s School of Communications

CALL FOR PAPERS for the 2005-06 academic year

Deadline for Submission: 15 June 2005

This seminar provides a forum for “works-in-progress” that explore the relationship between technology, politics, and culture, broadly defined. It takes place on Fridays from 3:30-5:00 p.m. at the Newberry Library in Chicago.

It is open to graduate students, faculty members, independent scholars, and professionals in related fields, such as engineering and urban planning. To maximize the 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, and to individuals who need a venue to present their work. Papers dealing with pre-1900 and non-U. S. topics are particularly welcome.

If you are interested in presenting a paper and have questions, please contact Richard R. John (University of Illinois at Chicago; contact information provided below).

To apply, please send a one-page proposal along with a brief c.v. to Aaron Shapiro, Dr. William M. Scholl Center for Family and Community History, The Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton St., Chicago, IL 60610; e-mail: [email protected]; phone (312) 255-3681; fax (312) 255-3696.

We hope to have the schedule established for 2005-06 by 15 July 2005 but may have open slots for proposals that are submitted after that date.

The Newberry Library is unable to provide funds for travel or lodging, but can provide assistance in locating accommodations.
