研讨会

The MHS organizes seven seminar series that operate from September to May. These sessions bring together a diverse group of scholars and interested members of the public to workshop a pre-circulated paper. After brief remarks from the author and an assigned commentator, the discussion is opened to the floor. All are encouraged to ask questions, provide feedback on the circulated essay, 讨论手头的话题. Our sessions are free and open to everyone. 注册在这里 to attend and receive the session papers.
