Colonial Americas Workshop
The Workshop is a seminar series for Princeton students and faculty interested in the study of the colonial, imperial, and revolutionary history of the Americas, broadly construed. The series brings together scholars from a wide range of sub-disciplines for the purpose of sharing scholarship, presenting student and faculty research, and discussing problems and trends in colonial history. The series also seeks to create more opportunities for informal interaction between graduate students and senior scholars.
