The Core Seminar of the Doctoral Program in Anthropology and History provides a context in which to examine the categories, theories, methods and craft of social research and writing, focusing on the interplay of anthropology and history, ethnography and historiography. The seminar addresses the intersections and mutual engagements between anthropology and history as regards their research methodologies, conceptual concerns and modes of analysis. It inquires into the history of these engagements and into the emergence of inter- and trans-disciplinary work.

The Core Seminar is organized as a year-long program that runs from the winter term through the following fall term. The winter term is dedicated to the intensive discussion of writings, both monographs and articles, that illuminate significant issues and debates within and across these disciplines. The fall term is organized as a "research seminar" that provides a space for attention to the crafts of analysis and writing and for the discussion of research papers being prepared for the seminar by its members. Papers written within the fall term seminar satisfy the Department of History’s Research Seminar requirement. Dissertation writers may find this a particularly useful forum for the development of their own writing.

The Core Seminar is a required sequence for students in the Doctoral Program in Anthropology and History. However it is also open, by permission of instructors, to graduate students in the Departments of Anthropology and History who are interested in developing studies and research that involve the integration of anthropological and historical perspectives or who are in conversation with some of the developments associated with the unfolding of historical anthropology and anthropological history. The Core Seminar may be taken as a two-term sequence or as independent units.
