Throughout the year, the Library & Archives host workshops that bring scholars from around the world to the Hoover Institution to discuss current trends in a specified area of study and to gain hands-on experience and access to many unique and rare primary sources from Hoover's fast-growing holdings. For one to two weeks, scholars conduct research in the reading room, meet daily to present their current work, attend lectures, and exchange ideas over meals. Hoover workshops promote multi-disciplinary, scholarly discourse, and have resulted in numerous publications in the form of books, magazine and journal articles, blogs, and monographs. Each workshop includes lectures delivered by leading researchers and authors in the specified area of study.
The focus of each workshop varies year to year. Workshop descriptions, application dates and requirements, contact information, and past workshop information can be found on each workshop’s event webpage.
