Institute for Political History

  • Description
  • Founded in 2000 with an ini­tial gift from Thomas H. Critchlow, the Insti­tute for Polit­i­cal His­tory is orga­nized to pro­mote aca­d­e­mic study and schol­arly research in the field of Amer­i­can polit­i­cal his­tory and to pro­mote the advance­ment of our under­stand­ing of Amer­i­can polit­i­cal his­tory through grants for research, pub­li­ca­tions, con­fer­ences, work­shops, and seminars.

    Among the activ­i­ties the Insti­tute spon­sors are a bian­nual con­fer­ence of schol­ars and oth­ers inter­est in the his­tory of Amer­i­can pol­i­tics and pub­lic pol­icy. The Insti­tute also sup­ports the train­ing and research projects of grad­u­ate stu­dents inter­ested in Amer­i­can polit­i­cal his­tory. In 2004, the Insti­tute launched an ini­tia­tive to estab­lish the Hugh Davis Gra­ham Research Fund to pro­vide grants to grad­u­ate stu­dents and young schol­ars begin­ning work in polit­i­cal and pol­icy his­tory, state devel­op­ment, or polit­i­cal insti­tu­tions in his­tor­i­cal perspective.

    Our Mission

    Our mis­sion is to sup­port the advance­ment of knowl­edge Amer­i­can polit­i­cal his­tory through grants, research, con­fer­ences, sym­posia, and guest lec­tur­ers. The Insti­tute also sup­ports the train­ing and research projects of grad­u­ate stu­dents inter­ested in Amer­i­can polit­i­cal his­tory. In 2004, the Insti­tute launched an ini­tia­tive to estab­lish the Hugh Davis Gra­ham Research Fund to pro­vide grants to grad­u­ate stu­dents and young schol­ars begin­ning work in polit­i­cal and pol­icy his­tory, state devel­op­ment, or polit­i­cal insti­tu­tions in his­tor­i­cal per­spec­tive. Three years later, the Insti­tute launched another intia­tive to estab­lish the Thomas H. Critchlow Award to help young schol­ars and grad­u­ate stu­dents work­ing in nineteenth-​century polit­i­cal and pol­icy history.
