Seminars at the Massachusetts Historical Society

The Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston invites proposals for four of its 2017-2018 seminar series: the Boston Area Seminar in Early American History, the Boston Environmental History Seminar, the Boston Seminar in Modern American Society and Culture (formerly the Immigration and Urban History Seminar), and the Boston Seminar on the History of Women, Gender, & Sexuality, co-sponsored by the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe. Each series meets between 4 and 7 times during the academic year. Sessions typically focus on the discussion of a pre-circulated paper. Topics may extend beyond the reach of the MHS collections. Papers must be available for circulation at least a month before the seminar date. Each committee would like to fill at least two sessions through this CFP. 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 t o cwright@masshist.org. In your proposal, please indicate 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.
