The MHS organizes seven seminar series that operate from September to May. These sessions bring together a diverse group of scholars and interested members of the public to workshop a pre-circulated paper. After brief remarks from the author and an assigned commentator, the discussion is opened to the floor. All are encouraged to ask questions, provide feedback on the circulated essay, and discuss the topic at hand. Our sessions are free and open to everyone.
How to Attend: Register through our Calendar of Events and you will receive the session's discussion paper the day before the seminar by email.
Subscribe: Purchasing a $25 seminar subscription gives you advanced access to the seminar papers of all seven seminar series for the current academic year. Subscribe here.
