The History Seminar


This seminar showcases the most exciting work in the field of modern European history. Deliberately broad in scope, its research cuts across traditional geographic and methodological boundaries. The program combines polished papers and “work in progress” and features scholars at all career stages.

Note: This seminar was formerly known as the "New Directions in European History Study Group." For details and past events see here.
