The History Department at Rutgers-Camden announces its Lees Seminar for 2021-2022, 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.

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. If you are planning to attend a session, please RSVP to the Director of the Program, Professor Emily Marker, at least one week in advance.
