The Modern European Colloquium is a new venture at Yale University designed to build up a community of scholars and students broadly interested in the study of modern European history, both at Yale and in the surrounding region. The colloquium meets every other week on Wednesday evenings during the academic year, incorporating a variety of formats—small workshop papers, public lectures, works-in-progress, graduate student presentations—that introduce new ideas and stimulate discussion.
Housed in the Department of History and supervised by Adam Tooze, specialist in German economic history, the colloquium also encourages participation by those in other disciplines, including political science, economics, sociology, and cultural studies. We welcome faculty and advanced students from Yale and nearby universities to attend and participate in our colloquium.
For more information about the colloquium and our presenters, or if you would like to be considered for a place on our upcoming program, please contact our graduate student coordinator Aner Barzilay.
The Modern European Colloquium thanks the European Studies Council and the Department of History for their generous support.
