Chicago History Museum’s Urban History Seminars: 2007-08 Schedule

August 29, 2007

My H&E partner and I have found the Chicago History Museum’s Urban History Seminars to be both fun and worthwhile. This morning I learned of their schedule for the upcoming academic year. See below.

If you’re an aspiring scholar and live in the Chicago area, or even Milwaukee, the dinner and cocktail hour are literally priceless in terms of professional development. Outside of books, I can’t think of money better spent. Then of course there is the intriguing lineup of paper presentations.

If you have questions, leave a comment or send a note. – TL
