Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research.
The Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research (SICAR) is a four-day seminar in which Ph.D. students receive training in conducting archival research from world-class faculty, researchers, archivists,
and publishers. Although archival research is an integral part of many academic disciplines, it is virtually never taught at the graduate level. In an effort to address this deficiency, the George Washington University began the Summer Institute in 2003.
In 2015, SICAR is being organized jointly by the Wilson Center’s History and Public Policy Program and the George Washington University’s Cold War Group. The 2015 workshop will be held
Tuesday, May 26, through Friday, May 29, 2015 (participants are required to arrive in Washington by Monday, May 25).
