A two-day workshop on the present and future uses of training in history
Keynote Address on March 8 at 5:30 p.m. by Dr. John Lawrence, Ph.D., Office of the Democratic Leader, U.S. House of Representatives
Most history departments train their students to become traditional research professors. Meanwhile, the profession is changing, as historians seek new roles in the university or put their training to work beyond it. This workshop will explore the role history plays for non-university publics, interrogate the character of the historian in today’s society, and generate concrete initiatives for historical training at Columbia.

Co-sponsored by the Columbia Department of History and Columbia Maison Francaise, with support from: Howard and Natalie Shawn and the History Department's Board of Visitors,
Teachers College Center on History and Education, The Herbert H. Lehman Center for American History, The Consortium for Intellectual and Cultural History, The Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia
