Where British Library Conference Centre
As part of the British Library exhibition ‘Lines in the Ice’, The Eccles Centre for American Studies is inviting UK postgraduate students to present their research as part of a morning workshop in the British Library Conference Centre.
Call for papers:
Students are invited to submit proposals for short papers (15 minutes) on their work that will become part of two sessions of presentation and discussion. Submissions should take the form of a title, short abstract and biography (c. 150 words in total), sent to Dr Philip Hatfield (Curator for Canadian and Caribbean Collections and lead curator for ‘Lines in the Ice’) at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The call for papers closes on 1st December 2014.
This workshop will be followed by an afternoon symposium on ‘Alaska, the Arctic and the US Imagination’, as well as an evening event in collaboration with the US Embassy (to mark the United States’ role as Chair of the Arctic Council in 2015). Attendees for these events will be encouraged to take part in the student workshop discussions and students from the morning session are similarly invited to stay for the afternoon and evening events.
