The winter term talks are linked to the theme of "Anxious Agency," an exploration of the complexity of agency, including that of historians themselves. 

The institute will announce 2018-19 workshops, symposia, and other special events later this summer.

These events are made possible by a generous contribution from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.
