Center for Historical Studies

Miller Center for Historical Studies

THE CENTER'S GOALS

The center was established in 1999 to create a flourishing environment for the study of history at the University of Maryland. In 2006, the center was renamed the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies, to honor the generous endowment of two Maryland alumni who took a special interest in history.
 
The center brings together faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and staff within the university as well as scholars and teachers throughout the state of Maryland and the larger region to discuss important historical issues, both old and new, from ancient times to the present, and pertinent to all areas of the world, from the United States and Europe to Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Through such discussions, the center hopes to increase an appreciation of the importance of historical knowledge in the education of citizens, to underline the significance of universities in producing and disseminating new ways of exploring the world, and to generate excitement about the processes of intellectual inquiry, exchange and debate.
 
Every year the center runs a seminar series on its annual theme. It sponsors scholarly conferences and works-in-progress seminars with faculty members and it also awards research grants.
