Greetings, all,

The PhD Colloquium schedule is almost complete, as I am looking to nail 
down the last couple of dates with presenters.  FYI:  We will be meeting 
on these dates: Jan 25, Feb 8, Feb 22, Mar 15, Mar 29, Apr 12 and May 
3.  You should also keep April 26 open.  We currently have three 
prospectus presenters, but if we have more we will use the April 26 date 
as well.

The meeting room for the sessions has yet to be determined, so keep an 
eye on your e-mail for where we will meet next Monday.

The first three sessions are set in stone:

History Ph.D. Colloquium, Spring 2010

February 8          Preparing for Oral Exams

February 22        Dr. Katherine Benton-Cohen, Georgetown University 
Department of History

Discussing: /Borderline Americans: Racial Division and Labor War in the 
Arizona Borderlands/, Harvard University Press, 2009.

In addition, the department is running a job search this semester for an 
advanced position in 20th century American history.  The candidates will 
be coming to campus on February 4, February 8 and February 11.  In 
addition to their job talks, to which you are all invited, there will be 
meetings of graduate students with the candidates.  The times and 
locations have not been established with the exception of February 8 
when the graduate student meeting with the candidate will be at 4pm.  I 
will update you when a full schedule appears.
