No. 27: MAY 2008
Los Angeles, California 28th May

Dear Colleagues and Friends!

As you are aware, the Director of the CRF is currently in the USA with a
mission: to explore and develop contacts with academic institutions, different
masonic organisations and interests groups. A full report on the Director’s
trip will be submitted in the next newsletter, No. 28. Until then, we hope that
you find the following information useful and inspiring:

1) New Working Paper on CRF Website
We are pleased to announce that a new Working Paper is available on the CRF
Website. Finally, Jan Snoek’s fundamental overview of the progress of our
discipline “Researching Freemasonry: where are we?” (his paper from last year’s
ICHF in Edinburgh) can be downloaded in pdf-format.

The next Working Paper – by Andreas Önnerfors who treats the cosmopolitan
foundations of freemasonry – will be published in June.

See http://freemasonry.dept.shef.ac.uk/workingpapers.htm

2) ICHF 2009 in Edinburgh
The deadline for submission of papers and panels for next year’s ICHF is
approaching. Last submissions are welcome by 12th June 2008. Then a selection
process will take place and the outcome will be reported at the end of August.
Please download the first Call for Papers under:


3) MA Course
The CRF has intensified its activities to recruit potential students for the
forthcoming MA course in the History of Freemasonry and Fraternalism. It is
obvious that the MA course will attract more participants for a distance
learning option that we aim to launch in 2009. However, it would be very
helpful if any interest for such an MA distance learning course is declared as
soon as possible, so that the History Department is made aware of the full
potential scale of this programme. Please contact history@sheffield.ac.uk, in
order to declare your interest for the MA.

More information on the MA programme based in Sheffield is provided on
site: www.shef.ac.uk/history/ma/freemasonry

4) Session on freemasonry on the 5th International Conference of Marine
25th June 2008 9am – 11am Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich.
At this International Conference of Marine History, an entire session is
to Freemasonry: Dr. Helen Doe and Prof. Roger Burt will speak about “Maritime
Masons in Cornwall in the Nineteenth Century”, Dr. Dan Weinbren on “Masonic
Networks in a Nineteenth Century Port”, Prof. Andrew Prescott on “Membership of
Masonic Lodges in Some Northern Port Towns, 1780-1830” and Dr. Andreas
Önnerfors on “Swedish Freemasonry in the Caribbean: a Multinational Lodge in
the Port Town of Gustavia on St. Barthélemy around 1800”. For more information
and abstracts, see:

5) Conference in Leiden/The Netherlands: “The Expression of Freemasonry: Its
ritual, oratory, poetry, music, literature, art and architecture” 27-28
November 2008
A Call for papers has been distributed for this conference, preceded by the
inaugural lecture of Prof Malcolm Davies on 25th November, successor to Ton van
der Sande on the chair dedicated to research into freemasonry at the University
of Leiden. The full text of the CfP can be obtained by from the CFE,
info@stichtingovn.nl or the address below. Proposals for papers are to be sent

6) IInd Symposium on the History of Freemasonry and Patriotic Associations in
Latin America and the Caribbean, La Habana, Cuba 5th-8th December 2008
As a follow-up to the successful event that took place in December 2007 in La
Habana, the organising committee proudly announces the second conference on the
history of freemasonry and patriotic associations in Latin America and the
Caribbean for December 2008. A full text (until now in Spanish) for the Call
for papers can be obtained from the CRF or the Coordinator of the event, Lic.
Esther Lobaina Oliva: restherl@infomed.sld.cu

7) Research application for HERA
The CRF has over the last few weeks been very busy preparing a bid for a
grant under the “Humanities in the European Research Area” scheme – see
www.heranet.info. The application will be submitted during the next few days
and, we hope, will result in a full-scale application by the end of the year.
