The Kandersteg Seminars

Every year the Remarque Institute hosts an international seminar for young historians and social scientists. These meetings bring together, by invitation, a small number of scholars from the United States, Europe and elsewhere for an extended informal conversation around a defined topic or field. There are no formal presentations and no prepared paper or publication is expected. The seminar, which lasts four days and takes place in a mountain retreat in Kandersteg, Switzerland, offered younger scholars a chance to meet and get to know people in their field – especially those working in other countries – and offers them an opportunity to present and discuss their work in an international context.
