Research Seminars and Training

Research Seminars and Training

The American History Seminar Series involves all faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, affiliates, and graduate students in a weekly presentation of research. This is often presented by a visitor to the University, or may be the work of a lecturer or fellow in the American History Group. This Seminar has marked the University of Cambridge out as a global centre for American History scholarship. 

Students are required to attend the weekly US Research Seminar, to log attendance, and to ask at least one question per Term.  This is a thriving research seminar, bringing in a variety of impressive scholars in American history on a weekly basis.  Students are encouraged ask questions and to engage with speakers.

In addition, there is an American History workshop, which typically meets weekly during Michaelmas and Lent terms and fortnightly during Easter term. Students are required to attend the weekly US History Graduate Workshop, to present their work once in the academic year, and to offer feedback on the work presented by others.
