New Work in Progress Series

The Institute for Historical Studies' New Work in Progress Series highlights new research by advanced graduate students at the University of Texas and visiting graduate scholars from other institutions. The workshops focus on one pre-circulated paper. While we can't meet in person up on the fourth floor this year for coffee, tea and snacks, we can still convene virtually to share our insights and help presenters perfect their research projects! All events free and open to the public. For more information on the New Work in Progress series, contact Graduate Research Assistant and NWP Program Coordinator Brittany Erwin (web)(email), IHS Graduate Research Assistant and Doctoral Candidate in History, UT Austin.
