HKS Belfer BuildingThe Harvard Seminar on History and Policy is a forum for lectures and workshops that examine the relationship between our interpretation of the past and our approach to policy issues. Typically, each meeting features a presentation by an invited scholar whose cutting edge historical work-in-progress is informed by, or seeks to influence, ongoing policy debates. The aim of the seminar is to bring historical perspective to bear on the work and challenges facing policy makers, and to foster more awareness among historians of how their work can inform contemporary public concerns.
