Deadline approaching for Summer Seminar application

Dec 07, 2017

In July 2018, the Clements Center for National Security at the University of Texas at Austin will convene a weeklong seminar for doctoral students focused on the connections between statecraft and history.

Several sessions will examine the ways in which policymakers have used or misused historical knowledge in the past, and how different scholarly disciplines approach history. Sessions will also ask how policymakers should use history and what methods might be available for refining the use of the past in decision-making.

The Clements Center invites applications to participate in this program, which will take place in the beautiful Rocky Mountains at the Pines Lodge in Beaver Creek, Colorado. Applicants should be advanced doctoral students in history, political science, or related fields interested in careers in either academia or policymaking. The seminar will feature in-depth discussions with top scholars and senior policymakers and intelligence officials, as well as sessions devoted to academic publishing and strategies for approaching the academic and policy job markets. Each day will also have recreational time for participants to enjoy the mountain surroundings.
