The University of Chicago created the graduate workshops in 1982 to encourage intellectual exchange among students and faculty in the humanities, social sciences, and divinity studies. Widely replicated at other universities, UChicago workshops sponsor talks by PhD candidates, local scholars, and those from the extended global community. Debate and critical inquiry in workshops are a vital part of our students' education and scholarly agenda. They foster a sense of community and provide graduate students a forum for sharing their dissertation research and establishing valuable networks with students and scholars whose research interests are aligned with their own. 

History graduate students are active in over twenty workshops, which are sponsored by the Council on Advanced Studies Workshops. Each year, the CAS provides a list of all active workshops on campus, contact information for each workshop's leadership, and links to relevant webpages. Therefore, if you are interested in participating in one or more workshops, we recommend you contact the workshop coordinator or faculty advisor and visit the workshops' webpages for more information.
