European cultures bridge all disciplines and areas across the scholarly spectrum (humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, fine arts, business, medicine, etc.). As these areas interact and scholars discuss their respective findings with one another, interdisciplinary connections are made.
WESS (the Western European Studies Section of ACRL) is looking for researchers to participate in just such an interchange, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 16, 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm at the ALA Midwinter Conference in San Diego, California. If you have a research agenda or a preliminary paper pertaining to any topic in European studies which you would like to present, we would be interested in hearing from you. By design this session will be less formal than a conference or a symposium. It will thus benefit presenters seeking feedback on a tentative plan for research as well as those pursuing a more developed project. Presenters do not have to be WESS members.
Please submit a 250 word abstract for your paper along with a preliminary title by November 15, 2010. Please include the following information:
Length of time you will speak
(Please note that presenters should plan on speaking for 10 to 20 minutes — less time for a paper in its infancy; more time for a more developed topic.)
Please send in electronic format to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you at the session!
