The Charles Warren Center
Studies in American History

Welcome to the Charles Warren Center’s new website. 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 nearly fifty 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.   2014-15 marks the second year of a new postdoctoral fellowship on Global American Studies, the first year with a full cohort of four. And, 2014-15 also features “Multimedia History and Literature: New Directions in Scholarly Design” as the theme of our annual faculty fellowship organized around a broad theme in American history.
