Each summer since 2006, the National History Center brought together a group of historians at the beginning of their careers to participate in the International Seminar on Decolonization. These seminars provided an opportunity for scholars to discuss, exchange ideas, and write about the phenomenon of decolonization, or the dissolution mainly of the European maritime empires in the 20th century. In July 2016, the National History Center will hosted a Reunion Conference that brought together seminar alumni from the past ten years in order to discuss and share their current work in the field.
The International Seminar on Decolonization Reunion Conference took place July 5-7, at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The program can be found here.
