Passport cover

"If you teach a survey course on the history of American foreign relations, chances are that you don’t spend very much time on the Austria-Hungarian Empire, or “the Habsburgs,” as Nicole Phelps refers to that multinational empire in her remarkable new book," notes Thomas Schwartz, adding that "As Rodney Dangerfield may have put it, the Habsburgs get no respect.  Phelps is out to change that perception."

Job Workshop

For the third annual year, the 2015 SHAFR Conference will feature a Job Search Workshop, designed to help our graduate students and recent Ph.D.s better navigate the challenging job market.
