The History Department at Rutgers-Camden announces its Lees Seminar for 2018-2019, where scholars present cutting-edge research in progress through pre-circulated papers. Seminars open with an author’s introduction and a formal comment, followed by discussion and light refreshments. This series is supported by an endowment gift from Professor Andrew Lees.
If you are planning to attend a session, email Professor Emily Marker, email@example.com at least one week in advance. Unless otherwise noted, the Lees Seminar is held in the first floor seminar room of 429 Cooper Street. Maps and directions are available on the Rutgers-Camden site.
