Gainesville, FL—The University of Florida’s Samuel Proctor Oral History Program (SPOHP) is now accepting applications for the Julian Pleasants Visiting Scholar Award, open to individuals wishing to conduct research using the resources of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program or Special Collections at the George A. Smathers Libraries. See below for application procedures.
To support the study of southern history and promote the use of the collections housed at the University of Alabama, the Frances S. Summersell Center for the Study of the South and the University of Alabama Libraries will offer a total of eight fellowships in the amount of $500 each for researchers whose projects entail work to be conducted in southern history or southern studies at the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library (http://www.lib.ua.edu/libraries/hoole/), the A.S.
Please join the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies for a conference on Citizenship in the Era of the Civil War. Professors Laura Edwards and Steven Hahn will deliver keynote lectures, and more than 20 other presenters from across the United States and Europe will explore the many ways in which the Civil War era transformed the ideas and practices of citizenship.
I've created a web resource that should be of interest to other scholars of the American South.
