About our Research Workshops

Research Workshops are weekend-long, round-table discussions that bring together 10–14 junior and senior scholars to provide valuable feedback from a variety of perspectives on a work, or multiple works, in progress. Workshops offer academics the opportunity to advance inquiry on important topics within the classical liberal tradition, strengthen specific research contributions, and form interdisciplinary and inter-generational networks of scholars with whom they can collaborate in the future.

Research Workshops
  • Manuscript Workshops provide constructive feedback on a single book manuscript and offer commenters the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to a fellow scholar’s work.
  • On-Campus Workshopsan alternate format of Manuscript Workshopsare day-long, round-table discussions hosted on the author’s campus, bringing together 4–6 faculty and late-stage graduate students in order to provide valuable feedback on a work in progress.
  • Papers Workshops bring together authors contributing to a collected volume or special journal issue to workshop their individual contributions as well as identify themes and improve the work as a whole.

Interested In Having Your Work Reviewed? Contact us at Workshops@TheIHS.org to express interest in hosting your own research workshop with us. Please include a current CV, an abstract or detailed description of your project, and expected completion date. IHS supports authors throughout their careers with these workshops, including assistance for those who wish to convert a recently defended dissertation into a monograph or articles.

Publication Support

IHS offers personalized publication support to select academics interested in publishing an edited volume or contributing to a special journal issue. Funding is available for editors as well as authors, and IHS can also help promote the resulting work, and more. Eligible subject areas include free speech, civil exchange, liberty, equality, market dynamism, and social stability.
