Doctoral Workshop in World History, June 3 -15, 2013
Deadline: March 31, 2013
The World History Center at the University of Pittsburgh is happy to announce its third twoweek summer doctoral workshop on World History. The workshop addresses the construction of dissertation projects and teaching curriculum in world history. The program is based on common readings and discussions in World History, interdisciplinarity, and additional macro-historical branches (such as Transnational History and Comparative History) applied during the workshop to both the formulation of dissertation projects and course syllabi. Participants will evolve research proposals and syllabi in mutual discussion and in close consultation with the World History Center workshop mentors. The workshop will take place at the University of Pittsburgh from June 3 until June 15. The fee for each participant will be $1000 plus transportation (room and board are covered by the program). Fee waivers may be available for students with special needs.
Workshop participants may focus on any field or time period, but should have a strong interest in building a global dimension into their work. Applications are open to doctoral students from any university in any country. Preference will be given to students who have completed at least a year of graduate coursework and are currently working on their dissertation proposals.
Applications are to be submitted electronically. For details and application form, see www.worldhistory.pitt.edu.
