ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Harvard's Early Modern European History Workshop, under the aegis of the History Department, seeks to introduce graduate students at all stages of their careers to the most up-to-date and important work being done in their fields by both their colleagues and faculty in the New England area. A correlated aim is to provide graduate students preparing papers for major conferences (the American Historical Association, the Renaissance Society of America, etc.) with an opportunity to test their research, analysis, and presentation skills in a constructive workshop environment (attended by a representative audience of faculty and peers) and hone their skills for professional success. Toward these ends, the workshop sponsors approximately 8-10 presentations per year. Each of these presentations is followed by a reception with wine and cheese that encourages further discussion and allows students to meet and connect with potential faculty mentors.
The Workshop also supports the annual Harvard-Princeton Graduate Conference in Early Modern European History.
