Washington History Seminar

A joint venture of the National History Center of the American Historical Association and the History and Public Policy Program of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the Washington History Seminar meets each week, January to May and September to December. The Washington History Seminar aims to facilitate understanding of contemporary affairs in light of historical knowledge of all times and all places and from a variety of perspectives.

The Seminar thanks its anonymous individual donors as well as the George Washington University History Department and Villanova’s Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest for their support.
