Rockefeller Center-sponsored workshops encourage faculty members with a common interest in a particular policy issue to engage in research-based policy discussions on a regular basis. These sessions bring a variety of disciplinary perspectives to bear on a particular problem and foster a broader understanding of the theoretical and methodological issues involved in understanding the problem. The workshops are usually held from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Class of 1930 Room unless otherwise noted. Upcoming Faculty Workshops are posted below under each type of workshop and on the Dartmouth College Calendar.
International history is a growing area of scholarly inquiry that includes (but goes well beyond) the old field of diplomatic history. It is a field that examines the political, economic, intellectual, and cultural relationships and interactions between countries in the past, but provides an interdisciplinary historical perspective on issues of current concern, such as globalization, human rights, and regional conflict. The Rockefeller Center has established the Dartmouth International History Group to bring together the several faculty members in the History, Government, and Economics departments who have a working interest in international history. The purpose of the group is to bring in scholars from other universities to speak on campus about issues of mutual interest.
Conveners for this group are:
Leslie Butler, Associate Professor of History
Jeffrey Friedman, Assistant Professor of Government
Edward Miller, Associate Professor of History
William Wohlforth, Daniel Webster Professor of Government
