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: Stockton College, the University of Maryland at College Park, Lehigh University, Temple University, Millersville University, Brigham Young University, Rider University, Gettysburg College, The College of New Jersey, Johns Hopkins University, NYU, George Washington University, University of Pennsylvania, Ursinus College, Fordham University, Providence College, Villanova University, Iona College, Princeton University, Seton Hall University, and SUNY Stony Brook.
