New Scholarship on the US South: A Wilson Library Fellows Symposium is a capstone multidisciplinary symposium from the University Libraries at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It will take place November 7 and 8, 2023, on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus.
Focused on emerging trends in scholarship of the American South, the symposium explores the cross-disciplinary currents in historical research created with support of the Southern Studies Doctoral Fellowship program at the Wilson Special Collections Library. These fellowships and the symposium are generously supported by the Watson-Brown Foundation.
Past fellows have been invited to submit proposals for papers presenting recent research and intellectual work. Papers will be organized into panels that reflect innovative and thematic approaches to Southern Studies, facilitated by invited discussants.
This hybrid conference is free and open to the public. Registration is requested for virtual and in-person attendees.
Attending this conference counts as CLE credit for Carolina students.
