Fall 2012 Senior Thesis Presentations

On December 1, 2012, the Department of History hosted its fall senior seminar presentations for History 410.  Nineteen students presented the results of their research on that day, and the topics ranged from the persecution of Jews during the Black Death, the politicization of the American environmental movement, the effect of the media on American elctions, and the involvement of women in the Civil War.  We always pause for breaks in the course of the day for coffee and donuts, and lunch is always pizza and soda.

The day included panel discussions (left), student presentations (Emily Cryan, below, seen here speaking about P. T. Barnum and Bridgeport, Connnecticut) and opportunities for informal conversations (Professors Purcell and Wang, seen here below, during a break).
