The workshop meets regularly on Fridays during term to discuss precirculated papers. The papers represent the cutting edge of scholarship at the interface between historically-inflected work in the humanities and the social sciences. Each workshop will begin with the response from an affiliated graduate student, to be followed by free-ranging discussion.

Instructions for responding at CHESS.
