Shelby Cullom Davis Center
The Davis Center for Historical Studies is named after Shelby Cullom Davis '30, who provided a generous gift to assure the continuance of excellence in scholarship and the teaching of history at Princeton University.
Since its inception, The Davis Center's chief function has been to foster research on chosen themes through a weekly seminar, conferences, and workshops. Emphasis is placed on interdisciplinary approaches and subjects that span different geographical areas and periods. Learn more about the Center, our current theme, and fellowship opportunities.
