Call for Papers
The New England MG T Register is seeking proposals for papers to be presented at its Kimber Festival to be held at the Glenn H. Curtis Museum in Bath/Hammondsport, NY, the weekend of April 13-14, 2018.
The Kimber Festival brings together enthusiasts who are keenly interested in M.G. history. Organized as an academic conference, the program consists of presentations about all M.G.s with topics that may include design and production, technical discussions, competitors, and competitions. Papers about the last MGB will be as welcome as one about the first M.G., Old Number One. Presenters pay all of their own expenses, as there is no budget for honorariums.
In addition to M.G. subjects, proposals for papers on topics related to the old car hobby will also be welcomed. A few years ago, for instance, we had a presentation about flower arranging using M.G. parts. Following the Festival, a certain number of the papers will be selected for publication in The Sacred Octagon, the Register’s magazine.
Proposals should include the title of the submission, names and affiliations of presenters, together with addresses, phone numbers, email addresses of contact personnel, proposed format (paper, panel, workshop, etc.) and a short abstract describing the content of the presentation. A computer projector will be available for power point presentations.
Proposals must be received by December 31, 2017; notification of acceptance is anticipated by January 31.
Proposals should be submitted to:
Richard L. Knudson, 9 St. James’ Place #207, Oneonta, New York 13820 USA,
