our program

The CHABRAJA CENTER FOR HISTORICAL STUDIES promotes broad scholarly engagement with historical materials. CHABRAJA is pronounced "Tcha-BRAH-ya."

CCHS hosts an annual lunch lecture series and sponsors or co-sponsors a multitude of other campus events on the subject of history: conferences, lectures, panel discussions, seminars, workshops, and global graduate exchanges. The Center is benefiting from part of a generous 2015 gift of $5.6 million for the University from Eleanor and Nicholas Chabraja, which has enlarged the original Chabraja endowment and provides for an expansion of our programs, thanks to which we now support two Chabraja Postdoctoral Fellows competitively selected from among recent NU History PhDs.
