Writing History

Writing History is a primarily a discussion group for graduate students interested in thinking more creatively about their academic history writing. In the past, Writing History has sponsored outside lecturers and internal panels. The normal routine of the groups, however, is to have bi-weekly meetings in order to discuss a particular reading. A different participant chooses the reading each time; some semesters, we read relevant historical or theoretical or creative selections. Currently, the group focuses on reading each other’s submissions (mostly dissertation chapters and article drafts).
