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.
