If not otherwise announced, the Research Seminar meets Wednesdays 4.30 - 6.00 pm in the GHI Seminar Room. The GHI Research Seminar is a forum for scholars to discuss their ongoing research projects. Taking place on a biweekly basis, it brings together international researchers, DC scholars and GHI research fellows to stimulate intellectual exchange in a wide variety of historical problems, epochs and methods. The seminar discussions are based either on project presentations or unpublished, pre-circulated papers. If you wish to attend or present your work in progress, please write to Anne Schenderlein and Sören Urbansky at researchseminar@ghi-dc.org.

The GHI Fellows’ Colloquium usually meets on Thursday mornings. Please send all inquiries via e-mail to Axel Jansen.
