The Workshop in History, Culture, and Society provides a forum for the exploration of new developments in historical social science, especially in the fields of Anthropology, Economics, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. The workshop's primary methodological goal is to initiate a discussion about what constitutes acceptable historical evidence in each of the social sciences. Its main substantive goal is to understand how the past influences the present. The workshop is open to students and faculty from all departments across the University as well as from other institutions.

The Workshop is held in room 1550 on the 15th floor of William James Hall. Lunch is provided. Students can register for the course by searching for Sociology 317.
