Alumni Testimonials

“ISS was the incubator that hatched a whole generation of international historians who led a revival in the study of war and diplomacy. And for all its success, it has never rested on its laurels, and remains extraordinarily open to new approaches.” 
Matthew Connelly, Professor of History, Columbia University

“Without ISS, I would not have been able to undertake the extended research that my doctoral dissertation required. The warm, collegial atmosphere provides fledgling scholars of international history with the ideal environment in which to develop their ideas. It is no accident that ISS alumnae can be found among the faculty of America (and the world’s) finest academic institutions.”
Stephanie Barczewski, Professor of History, Clemson University

“ISS was enormously beneficial to me as a historian of US foreign relations, and in particular in giving me a greater interdisciplinary understanding of the broad subject area. Above all, what I so loved during my time in New Haven was the intellectual energy that emanated from ISS; it was palpable to anyone who came in contact with it, I’m sure.”
Frederik Longevall, Professor of History, Harvard University
