NOTE: In 2018-19 HIGHS will run in conjunction with the Charles Warren Center Faculty Fellows Workshop. The workshop theme this year is "US Power in the Global Arena."
The Harvard International & Global History Seminar (HIGHS) is a forum for cutting-edge work in the fields of international and global history.
The seminar, organized at the Department of History and generously supported by the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, meets several times each term on Wednesday afternoons.
The current HIGHS schedule is below. The schedule for past years is available here.
* Unless otherwise noted, sessions are held on Wednesdays at 3:45 pm in the Lower Library of Robinson Hall, and papers are circulated in advance by email.
