History Workshops, 2012-2013
The department holds History Workshops about six times per semester. These consist of presentations of work in progress by current doctoral candidates, Boston College Faculty, and outside historians. It provides BC graduate students with the opportunity to present their doctoral research in a public forum and it also gives them the opportunity to see working historians at work.
