Call for Proposals Massachusetts Historical Society Seminars

The Massachusetts Historical Society is now accepting proposals for 2015-2016 for four of the five seminar series we host each year, the Boston Area Early American History Seminar, the Boston Environmental History Seminar, the Boston Immigration and Urban History Seminar, and the Boston Seminar on the History of Women and Gender (in collaboration with the Schlesinger Library of the Radcliffe Institute).

Each series meets on a particular evening of the month and focuses on the discussion of a pre-circulated research paper. The essayist and an assigned commentator offer remarks, then the discussion is opened to the floor. Programs are not confined to Massachusetts topics.

If you would like to be considered for a slot, please send your CV and a one-page précis of your paper by March 15 to Conrad E. Wright, Massachusetts Historical Society, 1154 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02215, or to cwright@masshist.org

Deadline: March 15, 2015

Papers must be available for circulation at least a month before the seminar date. Please indicate the series for which you are submitting your proposal and state when your paper will be available for distribution. If there are special scheduling conditions, such as a planned trip to Boston or an extended period when you cannot make a presentation, please so indicate in your proposal.
