WHEATS is an intensive, cutting-edge conference for graduate students and recent PhDs who study the environment, agriculture, technology or science from a historical perspective.
The workshop provides an outstanding forum for presenting and refining works-in-progress. Eight papers are discussed over the course of the one-day conference. Papers are circulated to all participants in advance, and each is assigned a senior scholar discussant who provides feedback and solicits comments from fellow participants.
The second day of the conference features a panel discussion with editors from academic journals and university presses about publishing a first article or book. Past attendees have found the conference to be extraordinarily helpful for improving their work and networking with colleagues in similar disciplines.
