Director’s Statement, December 2016

As Harvard’s research center for North American history, the Warren Center’s 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.

2016-17, the academic year just concluded, brought several timely events to the Warren Center: on the Dakota Access Pipeline, undocumented students, and global hip-hop.  See video links below, under Announcements. 

This summer, we will welcome postdoctoral fellows associated with the Global American Studies Program, and a new cohort of faculty fellows for the 2017-18 workshop on “Crime and Punishment.”  Check back soon for the next round of applications: for the 2018-19 faculty fellowship/workshop on “U.S. Power in the Global Arena,” and the 2018-19 postdoc application.
