Sponsored by the Penn State History Roundtable
Friday, March 22, 3:30 – 6:30, and Saturday, March 23, from 10:00 – 1:00
102 Weaver Building
Come join Penn State’s Undergraduate History Roundtable in celebrating the research of our talented undergraduate history majors! From March 22-23, ten students will present their papers and honors theses, covering topics from drug politics to constitutional history to Eastern Europe to children’s literature.
We’re thrilled to welcome many of our esteemed history faculty as panel members, namely Professors Mike Milligan, Kathyrn Salzer, Tobias Brinkmann, and Nina Safran, as well as many others in attendance. Each student will present his or her work, followed by a few minutes of questions from faculty members and attendees. Friday’s event will include a catered dinner, and Saturday’s a catered lunch, so come hungry! Historians understand the importance of good food.
The high caliber of undergraduate work that will be shared this weekend would be impossible without the Arts and Humanities Libraries, and while the library community is accustomed to helping undergraduates find sources and formulate topics, it often does not get to see the finished product. This conference is a fantastic opportunity to network with professors, discover new areas of historical and interdisciplinary interest, connect with motivated students, and get ideas for your own research!
Feel free to invite colleagues friends, and community members. Any questions can be directed to Chloe Weaver at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to meet you all there!
