A Call for Symposium



I cannot believe it has been so long since our last symposium. I blame myself, mostly. But I am excited to announce our seventh symposium, A Historian for the People, will be held on Friday, March 9th. We will be discussing the Sam Tanenhaus essay, History, Written in the Present Tense, March 04, 2007, NY Times.

Cliopatricians participating in the symposium should send their contributions to manan*at*uchicago*dot*edu by Thursday the 8th. I will post the symposium by Friday afternoon.

Contributions from all bloggers are genuinely welcomed at their own blogs (I am specifically keen on hearing from our friends at Progressive Historians). Please send me a link to your post and I will include it in the symposium post. If any of our distinguished historians who do not have a blog wish to email me their contribution, I would be happy to include them. Our desire is to have as broad a discussion as possible.

Sam Tanenhaus has graciously agreed to participate as a respondent to our symposium and we thank him for that.
