Senior Thesis Conference

This year the History Department's annual Senior Thesis Writer's Conference will be held Thursday and Friday, November 5th and 6th, 2015. At this event our honors seniors will present their works in progress to audiences of faculty and graduate students. These thesis writers will present their projects as members of three-to-four person panels moderated by a faculty member or advanced graduate student. Their aim is to get the critical and constructive feedback they need to clarify their arguments, refine their methods, and ultimately transform their research projects into theses. Like our faculty, our student presenters are conscious of their reliance on other disciplines in almost every aspect of their work. This conference supplies opportunities to engage in cross-disciplinary dialogues. Our guests also learn from these dedicated and talented young scholars even as they teach them new ways of conceiving and pursuing their projects.
