The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and the Council of Independent Colleges, with the UNCF, will cosponsor a seminar on Slave Narratives to be held at Yale University on June 7-10, 2009. The deadline for completed nominations is January 12, 2009. Guidelines and the nomination form are available on CIC’s website by clicking here.
This multidisciplinary seminar is open to full-time faculty members in history, English, and related fields at CIC and UNCF member colleges and universities.
David Blight, Class of 1954 Professor of American History at Yale will lead the seminar. For the faculty members who are selected to participate in the seminar, there will be no expense for room, board, books, or the seminar program itself. The selection process is based on nominations by chief academic officers, not direct application by faculty members.
Questions should be directed to Stephen Gibson, CIC’s director of projects, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
