Dear H-Empire subscribers (with sincere apologies for cross-posting),
A colleague and I are trying to put together a panel for the AHA meeting in New York next year based around our mutual research interests. We intend the panel to explore examples of historical interaction between early modern empires and dissenting religious groups. Specifically, we are interested in how empires used or abused religious groups to pursue their own imperial goals, and how dissenting groups in turn adapted imperial patronage or persecution to toward their own ends.
After our move to the Commons, I invited members to submit their relevant syllabi for posting on our Syllabi and Teaching Resources page. I have since learned that, in order for subscribers to contribute such materials, I must assign them "contributor" status on the network.
We invite applications to a National Endowment of the Humanities Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers, The Ottoman and Russian Empires: Citizenship, Belonging and Difference, to be held at George Washington University, June 9-27, 2014. The seminar is open to fourteen NEH Summer Scholars, teachers of US undergraduate students, drawn from different disciplines and two full-time graduate students. Deadline for applications is March 4, 2014.
