Ohio Center for Historical Research (CHR)

Ohio State University

The Ohio State University Center for Historical Research provides a stimulating intellectual environment for studying important historical issues around the world. Each year the Center brings together scholars from various disciplines to examine issues of broad contemporary relevance in historical perspective. The annual program of the Center is organized around a central theme, which will be explored through a series of twelve seminars.

The Center welcomes for year-long residency visiting senior, junior, and dissertation fellows chosen through an international competition. Additional visiting and OSU faculty will join the program to conduct seminars.  Fellows will be chosen according to the relevance of their research projects to the annual theme of the Center.

Since history is inherently a discipline that draws inspiration from the research methods of other academic disciplines, in addition to historians, visiting fellows and seminar leaders will be drawn from a range of fields whose scholarship relates to the annual themes, such as anthropology, art history, law, literary and cultural studies, philosophy, political science, geography and economics. The Center will also involve colleagues at Ohio State from history and other departments, since most of the annual themes proposed have broad interdisciplinary appeal.
