The Workshop in Modern U.S. History meets once per month to discuss works in progress by leading scholars in 20th-century U.S. history. The workshop is open to all graduate students and faculty. Sponsored by professors Beverly Gage and Elizabeth Hinton. 
Attention: current graduate students with special interest in U.S. History: Apply to become a 2023-2024 graduate fellow of the Workshop in Modern U.S. History. All graduate students are welcome to attend workshop sessions. Those selected as graduate fellows make an additional commitment to attend all seven workshop sessions and take a leading role in interchange with the visiting scholars (attending dinners, serving as interlocutors, etc.).  Students interested in participating as graduate fellows should send a brief paragraph outlining relevant background and interest in the workshop to and no later than Tuesday, September 5.
