The workshop meets approximately six times a year (once per month during the fall and spring semesters). In years when we have a search or searches, we may meet less frequently.
Presentations are made by faculty, graduate students in the final stages of dissertation writing, and guest speakers.
All speakers are asked to present work-in-progress. The presenter may work from notes, read a paper, or present a paper in advance for discussion. Regardless of format, discussion should represent a substantial part of each session, with faculty and graduate student participation encouraged.
The department chair appoints a workshop coordinator, who will serve a one-year term. Each spring, the Administrative Assistant sends out a memo to department faculty and graduate students soliciting names of and brief rationalizations for potential guest speakers. The workshop coordinator decides who to invite based on each nominee’s fit with the range of research interests in the department.
Department research interests include:
North American/United States
Modern and Contemporary
Empire, Nation, Citizenship
Labor and Social Movements
Crime, Law, and Deviance
Women, Gender, and Sexuality
Race and Ethnicity
Religion and Society
