Call for Proposals
The Department of History at the University of Kansas is pleased to be hosting WHEATS in Spring 2014. Now in its tenth year, the Workshop for the History of Environment, Agriculture, Technology, and Science (WHEATS) brings together graduate students studying the history of the environment, agriculture, science, or technology. WHEATS is open to submissions from any discipline with interests in these fields. Papers — generally 25-30 pages — are circulated in advance to all participants, and at the workshop papers receive feedback from participants and senior scholars through a roundtable discussion. This format is well suited for works in progress, and the workshop will have sessions on professional development as well as opportunities to meet and engage members of the environmental history community at KU.
Potential participants should submit a one-page abstract (200-250 words) and a short curriculum vitae by November 15, 2013.
Please submit your proposal here.
