2013 - 2014 Saul O Sidore Memorial Lecture Series
General Proposal Guidelines
Proposal Deadline: October 26, 2012
We welcome proposals that connect the Sidore series to other significant conversations occurring on- and off-campus. Proposals need not focus on humanities topics. We are particularly encouraging proposals that address mathematics, science or interdisciplinary themes with math or science connections.
In recent years, the series has generally presented five or six lectures over the course of either the academic year or one semester. You are also welcome to recast the format. For example, it might be desirable to offer the lectures in a series of evening presentations over the course of a week or two. See examples of recent Saul O Sidore Memorial Lecture Series: 2009-2010, 2010-2011, and 2011-2012.
Faculty members may submit proposals as individuals or groups, and they may involve staff and students in their planning. A panel convened by the Center for the Humanities will review proposals. Proposals should include:
PREVIOUS SIDORE SERIES
Sea Stories for the Future
The Ghana Connection
Can Schools Reduce Inequality?
Exploring Democracy at Home and Abroad
Violence Against Women: Complicating
the Legacy of Andrea Dworkin
Modernity and Evil
Research and the Public Interest
Eating as a Moral Act
Educating Bodies: Culture,
Power and Socialization
Globalization and Social Movements
Education for the New Millenium
Women and Religion
Blackness and Whiteness
The Idea of New England
Proposals should not exceed five pages.
In recognition of the considerable time and effort involved in organizing the Sidore Lectures, approximately $3000 of the award may be used for staff support, or a summer stipend. In the case of collaborative proposals, the funds can be applied to smaller summer stipends for more than one person. Please stipulate a use for the stipend in your proposal.
The Center for the Humanities will continue to be the primary on-campus sponsor of the Sidore Lectures. The Center will provide limited administrative support for the series by offering assistance with financial management.
Project directors will be responsible for inviting and scheduling speakers and venues, planning publicity, and other substantive responsibilities.
For an overview of the process of directing such a lecture series, please contact the Center for the Humanities program coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org, 862-4356).
