The first Dartmouth History Institute took place on June 12-14, 2017. Directed by Darrin McMahon and Udi Greenberg, its theme was modern European intellectual history. The participants, nine early-career scholars (advanced graduate students and recent PhDs), arrived from the United States, Britain, Germany, and the Netherlands, and specialize in a wide array of topics, from theology to aesthetic theory and bioethics. For three days, they workshopped chapter and article drafts, and discussed their plans for completing their book projects. They were joined by four senior scholars, who participated in the sessions, guided discussions about theoretical and methodological issues, and shared their own work.
