The AF HAB seek panels from all areas of early modern scholarship that reflect research undertaken at the Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel. If you have a plan for a panel, please consider submitting for the RSA in Chicago, The Palmer House Hilton, 30 March – 1 April 2017.
The Herzog August Bibliothek, an Associate Organization of the RSA, may sponsor up to five sessions at RSA conferences. The current HAB representative, Mara R. Wade, is responsible for organizing and submitting sponsored conference sessions. Senior, mid-career, junior scholars, and advanced doctoral students all have a place in the sessions sponsored by the HAB, thereby continuing the practices of the library of providing avenues for formal and informal mentoring as well as cutting-edge cross-disciplinary research.
