MCEAS Consortium Undergraduate Research Workshop

The MCEAS Undergraduate Research Workshop was established in 2008 to extend the benefits of the Center to undergraduate students enrolled at member institutions, by holding a workshop for advanced undergraduates writing an honors thesis or research paper in early American studies. The Workshop provides a structured environment in which students can come together with undergraduates from other institutions, as well as graduate students and faculty, to discuss the ideas, source materials, and methods of their own research. A highlight of the program is the mentoring given each undergraduate by a MCEAS graduate or postdoctoral fellow. The Workshop meetings are held in conjunction with the Center’s regular Friday Seminar so that undergraduates can experience the process of scholarly seminars first hand. The Workshop has exceeded our expectations, allowing undergraduates to join the exceptionally supportive and successful community of scholars at the McNeil Center. Undergraduate Research Workshop participants are now enrolled in PhD programs in History, attending law school, and working in public history. Undergraduates from the following institutions have thus far participated in the workshop: Brigham Young University, Bryn Mawr College, Catholic University, Fordham University, Franklin and Marshall College, George Washington University, Gettysburg College, Iona College, Johns Hopkins University, Lehigh University, Millersville University, New York University, Princeton University, Providence College, Rider University, Rowan University, Seton Hall University, Stockton University, SUNY Stony Brook, Swarthmore College, Temple University, The College of New Jersey, the University of Delaware, the University of Maryland at College Park, the University of Pennsylvania, Ursinus College, and Villanova University.
