The David Center for the American Revolution at the American Philosophical Society invites proposals for works-in-progress for its 2022-2023 seminar series. We welcome proposals from individuals focusing on any aspect of the American Revolution and its era, especially the cause, course, consequence, and experiences of the event (1750-1820). The seminar meets once a month on Wednesdays from 3:00-5:00 p.m. ET during the Fall and Spring semesters. All meetings in 2022-2023 will be held on Zoom. To submit a proposal, please email a one-page proposal, a brief statement (2-3 sentences) explaining how this paper relates to your other work, and a brief CV by June 10, 2022 to [email protected].
On December 1-2, 2022, The David Center will host the conference, Somerset v. Steuart @ 250: Facts, Interpretations, and Legacies. The program committee invites paper proposals from scholars in all fields to assess what we have learned and how we might interpret events before, during, and after the 1772 decision. To propose a paper, please send an abstract of 250 words, a one-page cv, and a brief cover letter about how this topic fits into your past, present, and/or developing research, by June 15, 2022, to Interfolio.
