2022 Virginia and Derrick Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture

Call for Applications

 

“Empires and their Subjects”

The Department of History at the University of North Carolina Wilmington solicits applications for the 2022 Virginia and Derrick Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture. We invite proposals that engage with the theme of “Empires and their Subjects.” Possible topics may address, but are not limited to, the rise and fall of empires, borders, migration, culture, politics, and war. Submissions may concern any time period or geographic region. 

The Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture provides a forum for an outstanding untenured scholar to offer their perspective on a selected topic related to this year’s theme. The Sherman Scholar will meet with undergraduate and graduate students, share their 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 effectiveness in speaking before a diverse audience. The scholar will receive an honorarium of $6,000. The lectureship will take place on the UNCW campus October 18-20, 2022.  

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 Ms. Meaghan Wright at wrightm@uncw.edu.  

 

The deadline for submission is April 11, 2022. Finalists must be available for Zoom

interviews between April 25 and May 9, 2022.
