Welcome to the Charles Warren Center on-line. As Harvard’s research center for North American history, our mission is to advance research and teaching in the broad range of American historical inquiry, and to serve as a nexus for the community of Americanists at Harvard and in the Boston area. The Warren Center has, over the forty-plus years of its existence, brought hundreds of postdoctoral fellows to Harvard, and awarded significant funds to generations of Harvard students, both undergraduate and graduate. The Center also hosts public lectures, and sponsors conferences, symposia, and the occasional publishing project.
The Warren Center is now home to two fellowship programs. 2013-14 will mark the inception of a new two-year postdoctoral fellowship on Global American Studies. And, the coming academic year will also feature “The Environment and the American Past” as the theme of our annual faculty fellowship organized around a broad theme in American history.
