Visiting Scholars Seminar: New Research on Europe


The Visiting Scholars Brown-Bag Lunch Seminar, organized by Arthur Goldhammer, is intended to be an open public forum in which visiting scholars at CES present their work in an informal setting. The group is highly interdisciplinary, and topics vary according to the interests of each year's visitors.

Poul Kjaer, CES Visiting Scholar (2014-2015)

"The Visiting Scholars Seminar is an intellectual feast for anyone interested in European scholarship in history and the social sciences. The discussions range freely across disciplinary as well as national boundaries."


Annabelle Allouch, CES Visiting Scholar (2015-2016)

Speakers 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. After each presentation, there is ample time for critique and discussion. Participants are encouraged to bring lunch.

Siegfried Weichlein, CES Visiting Scholar (2015-2016)

The Visiting Scholars seminar is an intellectual feast for anyone interested in European scholarship in history and the social sciences. The discussions range freely across disciplinary as well as national boundaries, and participants come away with a lively appreciation of work being done by colleagues in many specialties. The exchange of ideas that takes place here has already borne fruit in the work of past participants and will no doubt continue to do so in the future.
