CfA: Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research, Washington DC

CFA: The Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research, Washington DC, June 7-11, 2010
DEADLINE: February 25, 2010

SICAR is a five-day seminar in which Ph.D. students receive training in conducting archival research. Although archival research is an integral part of many academic disciplines, it is virtually never taught at the graduate level. In an effort to address this deficiency, the George Washington University began the Summer Institute in 2003. SICAR welcomes students working on dissertation topics related modern
history and international affairs. In 2010, the Summer Institute will continue to welcome participants from various disciplines including history, government and politics, international relations, sociology, anthropology, and public policy, as well as area and regional studies.

International applicants are welcome to apply. There are no citizenship requirements.

SICAR will be limited to 20 participants, and preference is given to students who have defended their dissertation proposal and are about to embark on dissertation research. Applicants must submit the application form (see website), a two-page proposal indicating how they would benefit from participation in SICAR, a CV, and one letter of recommendation from a faculty member in their department.

The deadline for applications is February 25, 2010 and decisions will be announced by the end of March. Please send applications via e-mail (ATTN: SICAR APP) to sicar@gwu.edu. Letters of recommendation can also be sent via email or by regular mail to:
