The Hoover Institution Library & Archives are pleased to accept applications for participation in the Hoover Archives Summer Workshop on Totalitarian Regimes.
The Workshop will be held at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, from July 20 to July 31, 2015. It brings together an interdisciplinary slate of scholars who are using the collections of the Hoover Institution Library & Archives to study totalitarian regimes, broadly defined. A wide range of research is suitable for this program, limited only by the holdings of the Hoover Library & Archives itself. Scholars from any field who would benefit from immersion in the archives are welcome. Participants must be holders of the Ph.D. or scholars with a commensurate publication record, or be advanced graduate students.
Participants are expected to have an active research program and to spend each weekday working in the Hoover Library & Archives. They will attend a daily group lunch, and to be available to make an informal lunchtime presentation on their research.
Participants will be provided with lodging for the duration of the Workshop and most weekday lunches and dinners. Participants are required to cover all other costs, including transportation and incidentals.
Applicants are encouraged to consult the workshop web page to determine the researchers and research topics that have been covered in past workshops.
All applicants are required to submit their applications online with the following:
