Tepaske Seminar in Colonial Latin American History

The Tepaske Seminar, named in honor of John J. Tepaske, an eminent historian of Latin America, is organized in a workshop style format in which article or chapter-length works in progress are pre-circulated. The seminar has been hosted in recent years by Emory University, Duke University, Georgetown University with the University of Maryland, Davidson College, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Kentucky. The seminar brings together graduate students and junior and senior scholars from the United States, Latin America, and Canada. Its workshop format provides an ideal opportunity for intellectual exchange and mentorship.
