Welcome to IHSS!

Since its founding in 2007, the Stony Brook Initiative in Historical Social Sciences (IHSS) has sought to foster ongoing conversations and collaboration between historians and social scientists.

The IHSS draws some two dozen faculty and graduate students from History and Sociology and other allied fields. Over the past decade the IHSS has sponsored a works-in-progress discussion workshop that regularly meets 2 to 3 times per semester. The IHSS Workshop mixes new Stony Brook faculty research with visits by innovative outside distinguished figures in the field, including Julia Adams, Karen Barkey, George Steinmetz, and Partha Chatterjee.

If you are interested in our workshops and growing community, please join our mailing list by writing to: IHSS@stonybrook.edu
