IHS also offers financial support for travel, research and other expenses related to career advancement through our Hayek Fund for Scholars.

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 Workshops, an alternate format of Manuscript Workshops, are 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 to express interest in hosting your own research workshop with us.
