Global Exchanges

International Doctoral Workshops and Exchanges


CHS organizes international workshops and exchanges. Competitively selected NU graduate students across subfields of the History Department meet with their peers in or from other parts of  the world, network, compare notes on the state of the profession, and engage in discussions of their research during an intensive two-day workshop. The Center has organized workshops at peer institutions in Galway, Ireland; Munich, Germany; Cambridge, UK; Sestri Levante, Italy; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Prague, the Czech Republic; Trinity College Dublin; the American Academy in Rome; Warsaw, Poland, and Istanbul, Turkey. A group from Trinity College Dublin came to Evanston for a workshop in 2010. In 2013 an agreement with the Institute of Historical Research in London resulted in an exchange between paired doctoral students from NU and British universities, with a trip for 7 NU students to London during Spring break, and a weeklong stay of their British counterparts in Evanston taking part in Center activities.

At present we have two annual global graduate exchanges—with the School of History at QUEEN MARY UNIVERSITY of LONDON (QMUL) and the Department of History at the UNIVERSITY of HONG KONG (HKU).

2020-21 Global Graduate Exchanges with QMUL and HKU

For now the CCHS global graduate exchanges have been suspended due to the pandemic.

2019-20 Global Graduate Exchanges with QMUL and HKU

Due to the coronavirus pandemic March 2020 travel to London to take part in a conference at QMUL was initially postponed to mid-September, then canceled. Hong Kong University has cancelled its annual May History Symposium and so the 2019-20 exchange will not happen.
