Every autumn, as academic lives resume across Chicago, we at the Scholl resume the Scholl Center Seminar series.  The seminars have brought local and national scholars together to discuss emerging research in American studies for over a decade, and we are proud to announce the 2012-13 schedule.

The 2012-13 year will include thirty-six seminars and fifty-nine papers in six different seminar series.  Opening this year’s series are Josef Barton, presenting at the Labor History seminar; and Sarah Carter and Sascha Scott at the American Art and Visual Culture seminar, both of which will be held on September 21. Other upcoming seminars include Felice Batlan at the Women and Gender seminar; Katherine Grandjean at the Early American History seminar; and Margie Brown-Coronel, Rebecca Schreiber, Lessie Jo Frazier, and Deborah Cohen at the Borderlands and Latino Studies seminar.  

All seminars are open to the public at no cost.  Papers are pre-circulated to participants.  To register, email scholl@newberry.org to request a copy of the paper.  We hope to see you there!
