The Newberry Library Seminar in American Indian Studies
This seminar provides a forum for works-in-progress that explore topics in American
Indian Studies. We encourage the submission of proposals for seminar papers that
examine a wide variety of subjects relating to American Indian and Indigenous history
and culture broadly conceived. We welcome proposals from scholars working in a wide
range of academic fields, and are particularly interested in interdisciplinary approaches.
The seminar is open to graduate students, faculty members and independent scholars.
Graduate students and junior faculty in the early-writing stages who wish to present
work are especially encouraged to apply. To maximize 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. The seminar meets several
times during the academic year, usually on a Thursday afternoon from 4pm to 5:30pm, at
the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois.
To propose a paper, please send a one-page proposal, a statement explaining the
relationship of the paper to your other work, and a brief c.v. to Jade Cabagnot, Program
Assistant, D'Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies, The
Newberry Library. Please send all materials as electronic attachments via email to:
If you are interested in proposing a paper and have questions, please contact seminar
coordinator and Director of the McNickle Center, Dr. Scott Manning Stevens.
