“Conspiracies – Real and Imagined”

The University of North Carolina Wilmington Department of History solicits applications for the 2021 Virginia and Derrick Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture. We invite proposals that engage with the 2021 theme of “Conspiracies – Real and Imagined.” Possible topics may address, but are not limited to, seizures of power, elections, massacres and atrocities, health and medicine, technology, mass media, global economy, and international relations. Submissions concerning all time periods and all geographic regions are welcome.

The Sherman Lecture provides a forum for an outstanding junior scholar (untenured assistant professor or researcher) to offer his or her perspective on a selected topic related to this year’s theme. The Sherman Scholar will meet with undergraduate and graduate students, share his or her expertise with faculty members in history and related fields, and be available to the local media. The centerpiece of the scholar’s visit will be the presentation of a major public address, which the university will subsequently publish.

Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of scholarly accomplishment, relevance of the proposed talk to the year’s theme, and evidence of ability in speaking before a diverse audience. The scholar will receive an honorarium of $5,000. The lectureship will take place on the UNCW campus October 26-28, 2021.

Applicants should submit a letter of interest with the title and brief description of the lecture they propose to deliver, current c.v., the names and email addresses of three references, and a recent scholarly publication. Materials should be sent electronically to Meaghan Wrightat wrightm@uncw.edu.

 

The application deadline is March 31, 2021. Finalists must be available

for Zoom interviews between May 2 and May 21, 2021.
