This seminar is open to the public.

[  Seminar Website  ]

The Harvard Seminar on History and Policy is a forum for lectures, panels, and workshops that examine the relationship between our interpretation of the past and our approach to policy issues. Some meetings feature a presentation by an invited scholar whose cutting-edge historical work is informed by, or seeks to influence, ongoing policy debates. Other meetings feature panel discussions or multiple presentations. The aims of the seminar are to bring historical perspective to bear on the work and challenges facing policy makers and to foster more awareness among historians on how their work can inform contemporary public concerns.
