2015 Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research
Jan 26, 2015
Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research.
The Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research (SICAR) is a four-day seminar in which Ph.D. students receive training in conducting archival research from world-class faculty, researchers, archivists, and publishers. Although archival research is an integral part of many academic disciplines, it is virtually never taught at the graduate level. In an effort to address this deficiency, the George Washington University began the Summer Institute in 2003.
In 2015, SICAR is being organized jointly by the Wilson Center’s History and Public Policy Program and the George Washington University’s Cold War Group.
The Wilson Center and George Washington University now welcome applications from Ph.D. students from the US and abroad working on international relations and modern history in a variety of disciplines, including history, government and politics, international relations, sociology, anthropology, and public policy, as well as area and regional studies. Preference will be given to students who have defended their dissertation proposal and who are about to embark on archival research.
Pending the receipt of funding, the 2015 workshop will be held Tuesday, May 26, through Friday, May 29, 2015 (participants are required to arrive in Washington by Monday, May 25). All sessions of SICAR will be held at the Wilson Center in downtown Washington, DC.
The deadline for applications is February 27, 2015.
