The Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy

The Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy (CENFAD), founded in 1993 by Drs. Richard Immerman, Russell Weigley and David Rosenberg, fosters interdisciplinary faculty and student research on the historic and contemporary use of force and diplomacy in a global context.

The Feinstein Center for American Jewish History

The Feinstein Center for American Jewish History supports innovative approaches to understanding American Jewish life. Its mission is simple: Inspiring Inquiry. In collaboration with institutions in Philadelphia and beyond, the Feinstein Center invites the public to join conversations about Jewish culture, politics, history, and identity across time and space.

Urban History Workshop

A collaborative endeavor between the Feinstein Center and the History Department, the Urban History Workshop hosts discussions about new research in urban politics, economics, and culture. Through book talks, works-in-progress seminars, and lectures, the Workshop creates a sustained intellectual conversation among faculty and students. You can view the events in the series below. For more information please contact the Feinstein Center at fcenter@temple.edu.

Center for Public History

Center for Public History program combines a solid grounding in American history with practical training in non-profit heritage management. Students serve internships in the shadow of Independence Hall, wander the back rooms of our nation’s oldest museums, and explore new possibilities for digital pasts at some of the most historically significant sites in the United States.
