Interpreting American History

A GRADUATE WORKSHOP AND LECTURE SERIES AT RUTGERS 2014-2015

Historical Legacies & Dialogues for the Present


Join us for the fifth annual Interpreting American History Lecture Series at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. This series probes a wide range of issues in American History.

This coming academic year, we will host three scholars who will share their keen insights and innovative work concerning the historical roots of various social, environmental, and economic problems in the Americas with the aim of shaping contemporary solutions.

Scholars will give public lectures and lead small graduate workshops. The graduate luncheon workshops work to bring together an interdisciplinary group of graduate students to engage each other on methodologies, theories, and source materials. The luncheons will be held at 1:00 PM. The wider Rutgers community is invited to the afternoon public lectures, which allow the visiting scholars to speak on their own research as connected to the annual theme.
