Hoover Library & Archives Workshop on Political Economy

Organized by Stanford history professor and former Hoover National fellow Jennifer Burns, the Hoover Library & Archives Workshop on Political Economy brings together an interdisciplinary slate of scholars who are using the collections of the Hoover Institution Library & Archives to study political economy, broadly defined. A wide range of research is suitable for this program, limited only by the holdings of the Hoover Library & Archives itself. Past participants have included historians, economists, and political scientists, but scholars from any field who would benefit from immersion in the archives are welcome.

Participants must be holders of a 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 day working in the Hoover Library & Archives. They will attend a daily group lunch, two group dinners, a keynote address by a visiting scholar, and make an informal lunchtime presentation on their research. Participants will be provided with a stipend intended to assist with expenses. Alternative compensation will be arranged for international participants who do not hold a US Social Security or TIN number.

Applicants are encouraged to read about the 2014, 2015, and 2016 workshops to learn more about the research topics and approaches that are suited to the workshop. The workshop runs in June every summer; applications are typically accepted in November with a late January deadline, and notifications in March. This summer the Workshop on Political Economy will be held June 26-30, 2017.
