Call for Proposals
I wanted to send a quick reminder of the opportunity to write a topical guide for H-Slavery. An outline of the process and a catalog of previous guides is available here: https://networks.h-net.org/node/11465/pages/118519/topical-guides. These guides tend to garner a wide readership, with our most popular one having received 5,000 views with an average visit time of 5 minutes, which is a pretty remarkable readership for a bibliographic overview.
The St. George Tucker Society invites doctoral students working on a dissertation relevant to the study of the American South to submit proposals for the Brooks Forum, a session of the society's annual meeting. This year's meeting will be held July 25-27 in Milledgeville, Georgia. Brooks Forum participants are awarded up to $500 to cover travel & lodging expenses, and their conference registration fees are waived.
