Graduate Colloquium

The Graduate Colloquium is a central element of the History Department's intellectual community. Funded entirely through graduate student fees, three or four prominent historians are invited each year to visit campus, where they deliver public lectures and offer intimate graduate-level seminars.

The events, attended by graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, and the community, bring people together for intensive discussions of a wide-range of historical topics.

In recent years, colloquia subjects have ranged from Ancient Rome, through Medieval Europe, Mughal India, the Nineteenth-century United States, and up to the contemporary global human rights community.
