Participants listening to speaker at CHSS workshop held on March 1, 2019. Photo by Kumar Ramanathan.CHSS holds regular workshops, about 3-4 times per quarter, featuring scholars in the field. Workshops are held Fridays 3–4:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted. Snacks and beverages are provided.

We invite both leading and new scholars conducting comparative and historical social science research to speak at the workshop. An integral part of the workshop is the opportunity for graduate students to meet with speakers during their visit. The workshop also periodically invites faculty and graduate student members from Northwestern to present their ongoing research.

Information about the workshops and papers are distributed through the CHSS listserv. To request to be added to the listserv, please contact one of our graduate student coordinators.
