The Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies was founded in 1969 at Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences to promote the interdisciplinary understanding of European history, politics, economy and societies.
The Institute of European Studies at UC Berkeley seeks to enrich the United States’ understanding of Europe—its people, developments and challenges—through the generation and dissemination of distinguished scholarship. Gerhardt taught at UC Berkeley from 2000 to 2006.
