Event Series

New Research on Europe Seminar


The New Research on Europe Seminar serves as a weekly forum in which CES Visiting Scholars present their work. Scholars present their work in a form accessible to scholars working in fields other than their own. Papers may be circulated in advance, although this is not required. The seminar encourages discussions across disciplinary as well as national boundaries. After each presentation, there is ample time for critique and discussion, followed by the CES Friday Lunch. This seminar is open to the public.

For more information on the Visiting Scholars Program at CES and how to apply, see here.

Note: This seminar was formerly known as the Visiting Scholars Seminar: New Research on Europe. For details and past events see here.
