Call for Proposals
Book Series: Perspectives in Economic and Social History (Pickering and Chatto)
Series co-editors Andrew August (social history) and Jari Eloranta (economic history) welcome proposals for monographs or edited collections from authors at any stage of their academic career whose research fits with the series theme. We are interested in hearing from authors to discuss potential projects or who are ready to submit a proposal.
Each year Haverford College Special Collections offers several one-month, $2,000 fellowships to researchers who are interested in using the unique resources of the Quaker Collection.
We invite applications from researchers at various stages in their career and from any discipline. The most competitive applications creatively explore concerns to which Friends have turned their attention, including literature, mysticism, women’s issues, family history, race relations, and American Indian affairs, as well as religious doctrine and controversies.
My name is Jessica Sheets, and I am looking for primary source materials of families divided by the American Revolution. Are there any individuals or organizations you would recommend I contact? I have a list of libraries, archives, scholarly journals, individuals, etc., that I am working through contacting, including a number in Canada.
