American History Forum

American History Forum

We are pleased to announce the ongoing American History Forum at Saint Louis University. The American History Forum is a seminar series dedicated to encouraging scholarship, providing professional development, and promoting intellectual exchange among young scholars of American History in the Graduate Program at SLU. The Forum will offer opportunities for students to present and discuss their research and build a deeper understanding of new directions in the field. The American History Forum will also feature talks by outstanding faculty members and visiting scholars. This is a chance for students in SLU's American History program to build community and collegiality. We hope the Forum will help provide a common frame of reference for American History students and faculty as we pursue our diverse research interests. Also, we cordially invite all members of the University community who are interested in American history to participate.
