Twentieth Century Area Studies Group

The Twentieth Century Studies Group is DSC-chartered organization for a group of students at the CUNY Graduate Center that provides a place for an exchange of ideas concerning the historical period and concept known as the Twentieth Century. The group aims to foster discussion between inter-disciplinary areas of study as well as provide a place for students to seek advice concerning professionalization, the state of the discipline, and for students to think through their own interests while using the “Twentieth Century” as a lens through which to view any number of different issues. The group meets regularly in order to plan events like speakers, panel discussions, and conferences with the aim of providing a public platform for Twentieth Century Studies at the Graduate Center. In addition, current and past activities have included sponsored talks and student-led reading studies groups and writing groups that meet throughout the academic year. The group also places an emphasis on the professional advice that event participants can extend to graduate students and wishes to provide an environment that facilitates communication between event participants and Twentieth Century Studies area group members. Membership is open to any and all Graduate Center students.
