Hello, everyone.

The Graduate Committee was a little late scheduling its meetings for this semester, but here are the dates: Monday 29 October and Monday 3 December. If you intend to do a HIST-804 (Minor Field Readings/Exam) in the spring, you must submit your proposal for Grad Committee approval in advance of one of these two meetings. Please submit both a paper copy and an electronic one (email attachment) to Prof Randolph Scully at [log in to unmask].

You can find the minor field proposal form (which includes some brief instructions) at For more detailed information on how to organize and propose a HIST-804, please refer to the appropriate section of the Ph.D. program guidelines at

If you have any questions, let me know.
