American History Graduate Workshop

The American History Graduate Workshop (AHW), which normally meets weekly during Michaelmas and Lent terms and fortnightly during Easter term, focuses on any topic in colonial American or United States history from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century. The workshop is run by the American History Subject Group with the full participation and input of graduate students. Papers, which participants are expected to have read ahead of time, are distributed one week in advance of discussion. A prepared comment is delivered by a volunteer.

All graduate students are welcome to attend the workshop. First-year PhDs (NOTAFs) are expected to attend the AHW unless they are away for research. Select sessions in Michaelmas term are mandatory for MPhils.

Please check the Graduate Training calendar for updated details. If you are interested in presenting your work or delivering a comment, please contact Dr Seth Archer (
