National History Center Introduces a Weekly History Seminar

The National History Center and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars will launch a weekly history seminar to be held in Washington, DC, beginning in January 2010. The purpose of the seminar is to promote discussion of ongoing and significant historical research.

The seminars will be co-chaired by Wm. Roger Louis, Director of the National History Center, and Christian Ostermann, Director of the History and Public Policy Program at the Wilson Center. Each seminar will take place weekly on Mondays at 4:00 p.m. at the Wilson Center, located at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC.

The seminar is open to the public, but reservations are required because of limited space.

The National History Center is dedicated to the advancement of historical knowledge at all times and in all places, ancient and medieval as well as modern—and not only in colleges and universities, but also in government, journalism, and the public at large. The aim is to foster worldwide understanding of the present in light of the past.

The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is the national memorial honoring President Woodrow Wilson. It provides an essential link between the world of ideas and public policy. The Wilson Center fosters relevant research and dialogue to enhance the capabilities and knowledge of leaders, citizens, and institutions worldwide. Created by an act of Congress, the Center is a non-partisan institution.

For further information or to make a reservation, contact: Miriam Cunningham, assistant director of the National History Center, at 202-544-2422 ext 103 or mcunningham [at] historians [dot] org.
