Dear friends and colleagues,

I write to upcoming or recent Ph.Ds working on any and all aspects of
religious or devotional history (broadly conceived).  And to ask all of you
to forward this to anyone who is doing cutting edge work on aspects of
medieval religious history. I am involved in running this year's *Dartmouth
History Institute*, which seeks to bring in the best new work/ finishing or
recent Ph.D.s, in Medieval Religious History, to Hanover NH for the New
Directions Institute this Spring (May 29-June 2).  Travel etc., covered.
The call is below. Please email me at

want all great, new, exciting, work!

CFP: New Directions in Medieval Religious history

We invite applications for participation in the second annual Dartmouth
Summer History Institute (Tuesday May 29-Saturday June 2). The theme for
2018 is *New Directions in Medieval Religious History*.  The aim of the
Summer Institute is to bring together the most promising young scholars
working on medieval religious history from across our field, to read and
workshop pieces of their historical writing as they embark on the
transition from dissertation to book, in order to take stock of emerging
considerations and approaches.  We are interested in all aspects of
religious history, including its links to political, social, cultural, and
intellectual history.  Applicants should be in the process of completing
their Ph.D. dissertations or in the early stages of revising the Ph.D. as a
book manuscript.  (Students finishing Ph.D.s in Spring or Summer of 2018
are encouraged to apply.)  Participants will each furnish a draft article
or working dissertation/book chapter central to or exemplary of their
larger historical intervention to be workshopped.   In addition to
workshopping individual pieces of writing, the Institute will include a
variety of fora (receptions, dinners, and lectures) to discuss theoretical
and methodological issues in the company of invited senior scholars. For
information about the inaugural Institute (on the theme of modern European
Intellectual History) held in 2017, please visit

Participation in the Institute includes travel, room, and board. To apply
send a CV and letter of application with 1-2 paragraphs describing the
project and the piece you would intend to workshop by March 1, 2018 to
Professors Cecilia Gaposchkin and Walter Simons, Dept. of History. All
inquiries, correspondence, and applications can be sent to
