CALL FOR PAPERS
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO
MARCH 15

The John Bachman Symposium will include six keynote addresses about various aspects of Bachman's life and work, offered by internationally known authorities. In addition, there will be an afternoon of shorter presentations given by college, seminary, and high school students and faculty; Bachman scholars; and the general public. Please do not feel that you must be an expert on Bachman to present a concurrent paper.

If you have an interest in anything about John Bachman--his personal life, genealogy, or involvement in theology, publications, natural history, politics, social reform, education, or connections to Audubon, Newberry College, the Lutheran church, etc.--we hope you will submit a proposal to present a paper. Concurrent papers will be 10-12 minutes long, with three minutes for questions and answers. Award(s) will be given for Best Student Paper(s) by undergraduate college and/or high school students.

General categories for Concurrent Papers are:

  • Personal Life & Genealogy
  • Natural History & Audubon Connections
  • Theology & Ministry
  • Politics & Social Reform
  • Education & Academia
  • Miscellany

Each paper proposal should be submitted via E-mail or by snail-mail as a Microsoft Word document, using a standard CONCURRENT PAPER PROPOSAL FORM (downloadable below); snail-mail submissions should include an electronic copy of the form on disk or CD-ROM. Abstracts--and full papers, if provided by authors--will be published in the John Bachman Symposium Proceedings; abstracts also will be posted to the John Bachman Web site.

You must be registered for the Symposium (either Full or Friday Registration) to present a Concurrent Paper (see REGISTRATION). Completed Concurrent Paper Proposal Form(s) must arrive at Newberry College not later than 3 p.m. EST on 15 March 2006. E-mail submissions are preferred.

  • Send completed CONCURRENT PAPER PROPOSAL FORM(S) as an E-mail attachment with "Bachman Paper Proposal" in the Subject line to DR. WAYNE KANNADAY. Please inquire if you do not receive an E-mail acknowledgment within two weeks.

  • If sending by postal service, save your CONCURRENT PAPER PROPOSAL FORM(S) on a standard floppy disk or CD-ROM and include a paper copy; address the envelope to:
